An Evening of Jazz & Song with Avi Wisnia

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

Singer, songwriter and musician Avi Wisnia performs original songs inspired by his love of Bossa Nova (a fusion of jazz and samba from Brazil), acoustic folk, jazz and modern pop. It's a dynamic combination of new sounds and a fresh take on some familiar favorites!  Join us and sway along, wont you? It's an evening you won't soon forget...  This event is free and open to the public.  Say you'll be there and RSVP at jazz2wvpl.eventbrite.com.

ABOUT OUR PERFORMER:

Award-winning singer/songwriter Avi Wisnia presents an eclectic mix of refreshingly original songs and inventive covers, finding inspiration in Brazilian bossa nova, acoustic American folk, 1950’s west-coast jazz, and contemporary pop. Avi’s clever lyrics give a knowing nod to his contemporaries, while his smooth vocals and deft piano skills assure you that this is truly something new.  Avi tours in support of his debut album, Something New, performing in prestigious venues around the world – from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City to The Kennedy Center in Washington DC to concerts in Warsaw, Poland and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His latest single “Sky Blue Sky” was recorded via satellite between Philadelphia and Brazil, winning recognition from the Philadelphia Songwriters Project and MidAtlantic Songwriters Competition. In addition to being a performing songwriter, Avi Wisnia has also given a TED talk about “The Nature and Nurture of Bossa Nova” and performed with The Moth storytellers. - Aviwisnia.com

The Justice Bell Story and the Pennsylvania Women’s Suffrage Movement

Amanda Owen presents the little-known story of how a bronze bell became a celebrated symbol of the women’s suffrage movement.  The creation of suffragists in Pennsylvania who were agitating for the right to vote, the Justice Bell helped rally support around the cause in the last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.

Amanda is the Executive Director of the Justice Bell Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reclaim women’s history, highlight women’s contributions, and to honor the Justice Bell and its historic role in the American struggle for women’s suffrage and equal rights.
