Lakeside Pride Jazz Orchestra presents America the Beautiful | Nightmare
Join the Lakeside Pride Jazz Orchestra for an evening of historical American protest music and edgy jazz in response to threats against civil liberties!
Our show will share a space with Alphawood Gallery’s ongoing exhibition Then They Came For Me an exploration of Japanese American internment in the U.S. during World War II, which will be open to view during the performance.
Join us for an engaging, thought-provoking program of jazz, 60’s folk, and soul music exploring historical and current threats to civil liberties in America. We’ll perform protest songs by Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye, Edwin Starr, Bob Dylan, Charles Mingus, and others to highlight the ways music is used express injustice, combat racism, encourage solidarity and bring about change.
Before and during the show, we invite you to take in the the artwork, photos and installations on display at Alphawood Gallery. The exhibit highlights the moral and ethical questions surrounding Japanese Internment Camps in America after the Pearl Harbor bombing and gives context to our message.
