Ruth Naomi Floyd presents Jazz Works by Frederick Douglass

Join us for a performance of jazz works by Frederick Douglass by Ruth Naomi Floyd. A vocalist and composer for over 20 years, Floyd has dedicated a discography explicitly dedicated to a sacred jazz expression. She leads her own multi-faceted ensemble and her recordings consist primarily of original compositions. Blessed with a soaring mezzo-soprano voice, critics praise Ruth’s music for its distinctive sound of progressive ensemble jazz that is seamlessly blended with messages of hope, faith, redemption, and love. A committed music educator, she is Director of Jazz Studies at Cairn University, Langhorne, and an Adjunct and Artist in Residence at Temple University. She also teaches music at The City School in Philadelphia. For more information, visit https://frederickdouglassjazzworks.com/.
