Penny Stamps Speaker Series - Ken Fischer and Wynton Marsalis: Everybody In, Nobody Out
UMS President Emeritus Ken Fischer and jazz musician Wynton Marsalis will be joining the Penny Stamps Series line-up on April 9th, 2021!
Exploring community connection through the performing arts, UMS President Emeritus Ken Fischer and jazz musician Wynton Marsalis come together in a conversation moderated by Lisa Richards Toney, president and CEO of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals.
Marsalis wrote the introduction to Fischer’s book, Everybody in, Nobody Out (Michigan Publishing, 2020), which offers a reflection on the power of the performing arts to engage and enrich communities — not by handing down cultural enrichment from on high, but by meeting communities where they live and helping them preserve cultural heritage, incubate talent, and find ways to make community voices heard.
In this talk, Fischer and Marsalis will also discuss the important relationship between presenter and artist in moving the artist’s work forward.
This event is co-presented by PBS Books and Detroit Public Television, with support from UMS and the Association of Performing Arts Professionals.
Our 2020-2021 Series is brought to you with the support of our partners, Detroit Public Television and PBS Books.
