This three-part series (Business of Jazz I and II, plus Mary Lou Williams Seminar) focuses on prominent women in jazz and the part they play in assuring that women will always be present in the history books and on the stage. Inspired by the example of Mary Lou Williams, this year's symposium will focus on women mentoring women, investigating what it takes and what it means for a woman to give of herself as a musician and teacher. The series will feature the artists performing as a part of the Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival, as well as noted jazz industry professionals and scholars.
