Ron McCurdy performed “The Langston Hughes Project”, a multimedia concert performance of Langston Hughes’ kaleidoscopic jazz poem suite titled “Ask Your Mama: Twelve Moods for Jazz.” Hughes created the jazz poem, a creative masterwork left unperformed at his death, as homage in verse and music to the struggle for artistic and social freedom at home and abroad at the beginning of the 1960s.
Also a group of young musicians from R. J. Murray Middle School performed as a group ( directed by Josh Bond) some of their numbers and did a number with Ron McCurdy. The concert was performed at the Lewis Auditorium on March 1, 7pm.
