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.” 

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.

The promo code “WGBHJAZZ” will allow access to event tickets on February 6th. The event activities are free.

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.
