Join BOA Editions for an Evening of Poetry, Jazz, and Art!
This Tuesday, June 26 at 6 p.m., BOA Editions presents an evening of Poetry, Jazz, and Art at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo). The event is free and open to the public, and will take place during the Rochester International Jazz Festival, one of the largest jazz festivals in the world!
Featured will be BOA poet Sean Thomas Dougherty, author of Sasha Sings the Laundry on the Line (BOA 2010) and Broken Hallelujahs (BOA 2007). Dougherty’s work utilizes a variety of experimental and traditional forms including canzone and elliptical poems, and explores questions of multiracial identity, the complexities of history, and the aching rhythms of the human voice in all its passion and silence. We welcome back Sean to his third appearance at the event, and are already looking forward to an incredible performance!
Musical performances will be given by Mark Kellogg, Jim Doser, Chris Azzara, and Danny Zeimann, and art exhibitions by Sarah C. Rutherford and Lea Rizzo will be on display. The event is sponsored by Lavin, O’Neil, Ricci, Cedrone, and DiSipio: Attorneys at Law – we thank them for their generous support!
Be sure to join us for a night of artistic excellence and an overall awesome time!
