Philly Celebrates Jazz WRTI Listening Session With Jazz Pianist Orrin Evans 

The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, in partnership with public radio station 90.1 WRTI, presents a live listening session with internationally-renowned jazz pianist Orrin Evans. WRTI’s Jeff Duperon will interview pianist Orrin Evans about his career in jazz and current projects and will accompany their conversation with the playing of Evans’ recordings. This intimate, hour-long conversation will be conducted in front of an audience in the Art Gallery at City Hall and recorded for future broadcast. This Philly Celebrates Jazz WRTI Listening Session is a part of the Philly Celebrates Jazz Community Series, which also features free performances, film screenings, and dance classes produced by OACCE that are held across the city in libraries, recreation centers, older adult centers, and schools.
