About

Jason Moran, Kennedy Center Artistic Director for Jazz

Jason and Alicia Hall Moran’s compelling new concert experience examines the major demographic shift known as the Great Migration, in which millions of African Americans left the American South after emancipation for the North, West, and beyond. These men and women brought their unique musical tastes and awareness with them—as well as new concepts of instrumental excellence with African American rhythms.

With other extraordinary performances also scheduled at Carnegie Hall and the Chicago Symphony Center, the Kennedy Center welcomes Jason and Alicia as they explore their own family lore and the stories of this historical movement with music from rhythm and blues to gospel, work songs to rock ’n’ roll to classical. They’ll be joined by Grammy®-winning vocalist Smokie Norful and the acclaimed wind quintet Imani Winds to deliver universal human truths and personal reflections through music, spoken word, visual media, and more.

Two Wings celebrates the enormous influence of the black community; what it left behind, the spirit it brought with them, and the essential art it continues to inspire.
