Brass | Kinda Blues: W.C. Handy and Friends

This concert celebrates music from the first golden era of jazz and stage.

Among the Beinecke and Yale Library collections are letters and photographs relating to great American composers, including W.C. Handy, George Gershwin, and Cole Porter.

The vibrant and innovative works of these composers established blues as a mainstream genre and gave rise to jazz, considered by many the most distinctly American form of musical expression.
