Timeless Portraits and Dreams: A Festival/Symposium in Honor of Geri Allen



On February 16-17, 2018 Harvard University will host Timeless Portraits and Dreams: A Festival Symposium in Honor of Geri Allen at Paine Hall (3 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02138).

Two concerts and two days of panel discussions featuring top musicians and artists who worked with Allen will honor her creative vision, artistic collaborations, and the role she played in establishing the shape of jazz today.

Geri Allen's passing last June at age 60 shocked the jazz world. Allen, a beloved pianist, composer, and educator, was known for her versatility and creativity across every stylistic area of jazz, broadly conceived. The New York Times obituary noted that “Ms. Allen’s style—harmonically refracted and rhythmically complex, but also fluid—formed a bridge between jazz’s halcyon midcentury period and its diffuse present.” 
 
Timeless Portraits and Dreams: A Festival/Symposium in Honor of Geri Allen is organized by Vijay Iyer, Ingrid Monson, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Esperanza Spalding. Cosponsors of the Festival/Symposium include the Jazz Research Initiative of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, the Hutchins Center for African and African American Music, the Music Department, Office of the Provost, the Dean of Arts and Humanities, the Associate Provost for the Arts, and the Office for the Arts, all units at Harvard University.
