Lemons For Lemonade – Uplifting Souls During Trying Times
On Saturday, September 25th the festivities launch at the Butler-McCook House & Garden with Ghazi Omair & Friends (feat. DJ Z-Rex). Hartford Hip-Hop lyricist and poet Ghazi Omair will focus on the musical space between Hip-Hop and Jazz, with an evening of music, rap, poetry and dance. Joined by DJ Z-Rex, jazz musicians Matt Dwonszyk – Bass, Jonathan Barber – Drums, Taber Gable – Piano/Keys, Michael Pallas – Trombone, Josh Bruneau – Trumpet, and dancers Chantal Edwards Matthews and Savana Jones, Ghazi will interweave his rap/poetry and conversations of social commentary between the songs. Interviewed Hartford artists include Adrienne Gale, Earl Henrichon, Savana Jones, Ghazi Omair, and Nat Reeves.
Admission is free, donations welcome to support programming at Connecticut Landmarks’ Butler-McCook House & Garden. Registration is required; same-day on-site registration will be allowed only if the event has not reached capacity.
