With performance ensembles in both Philadelphia & Seattle (& soon in Ottawa!) The Red Rose Jazz Project highlights the work of women composers and lyricists from the early 1920s to today with classic and contemporary Jazz interpretations of the standards, popular music, and their own original compositions.
As an all women's collaborative, the project takes its name in honor of American Artist Violet Oakley and her "Red Rose Girls" who chose to live and work together in solidarity - focused on their art. We don’t live together, but do love working together and love playing great music written by women! Each exceptional Jazz artists in their own right, The Roses include many outstanding female Jazz musicians, poets, and dancers ~ performing in many creative formations - always interesting, innovative, emotional, and elegant.
The East Coast Roses are available for special concert performances and private events in the greater Philadelphia area, PA, DE, NJ, NY, MD. The West Coast Roses are available in the greater Seattle & Puget Sound area as well as OR & Western Canada. The Ottawa Roses will begin booking late in 2020!
Reach out! We'd love to come to play a special concert or your private party for you!
