For over half a century, Mary Lou Williams tirelessly persisted as a talented Black woman in the male-dominated field of jazz. A piano prodigy from the age of three, her profound intellect and artistry countered any doubt in securing her rightful place in the ranks of Duke, Dizzy, Thelonious, Charlie, Miles, and others for whom she wrote, arranged, and played for. Music director Chris Pattishall (whose lauded recording of Williams’s “Zodiac Suite” was released this year) leads this uplifting tribute to the fearless mother of jazz.
This concert has been developed in consultation with Dr. Tammy Kernodle, Distinguished Professor at Miami University, current president of the Society for American Music and Mary Lou Williams scholar.

Multi-instrumentalist Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews brings his R&B, rock, rap and funk brass band Orleans Avenue to blow the roof off UPAC for the very first time!
Rare indeed is the artist with the virtuosity to draw the unqualified respect of some of the most iconic legends in jazz and the ability to deliver a high-energy funk rock show capable of mesmerizing international rock stars. Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is one such artist – and there is no one else like him. Trombone Shorty is equally adept on trombone and trumpet and is a man to be reckoned with on both. A product of New Orleans’ culturally rich Treme neighborhood, Trombone Shorty was a bandleader by the age of six. While navigating New Orleans with his band in tow, he was also absorbing lessons from his older brother James, a dynamic musical performer known as “Satchmo of the Ghetto.” By the time Trombone Shorty was twelve, he had a Ph.D. in the ways of the streets, which you can still hear in his music.
This is a reserved seated event but the Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue show is a veritable party. There will be points during the show that the band will encourage the audience to stand, participate and dance.
