Dr. S.T. Lee Distinguished Lecture Series in the Humanities


Celebrate choice with an improvisational jazz performance by percussionist Tyshawn Sorey and pianist Marilyn Crispell! After the performance, Penn Music's Guthrie Ramsey joins Sorey and Crispell for a wide-ranging discussion about the choices they make in improvisation and spontaneous composition, historical perspectives on improvisation, and their acclaimed 2019 release The Adornment of Time. This esteemed Dr. S.T. Lee Distinguished Lecture in the Humanities was rescheduled from last year's Forum on Choice
