WBGO Kids Jazz Concert with Riza Printup
Riza has always had a passion for education. As a former classroom teacher (Director of Strings and Early Childhood in Atlanta and Newark) and early childhood faculty member at Jazz at Lincoln Center, her desire is to not only bring music to life, but to share how many vital life lessons parallel concepts in jazz.
Based on her and her husband Marcus Printup's children's book Theodore and Hazel and the Bird, I HAVE A SONG INSIDE MY HEART™ is a program developed for young audiences utilizing literacy and jazz. Through the vehicle of jazz, I HAVE A SONG INSIDE MY HEART's™ mission is to help young audiences identify their personal truth, embrace their unique and beautiful individuality, and become empowered in self expression.
Free performance. Adults must be accompanied by a young person.
