THIS EVENT IS TODAY! MONDAY, NOV. 6 at 3:30 p.m. at the Manhattan School of Music. Join Jason Moran, Jazzmeia Horn and Wayne Winborne in a discussion of "creative autonomy" for younger and emerging jazz performers and composers. How do you find your own voice in jazz? What does it mean to be autonomous in a world that often encourages accommodation or assimilation? How do we as jazz artists remain true to our vision and principles while negotiating the contemporary marketplace, shifting audience demographics and diminishing support for the arts by our government institutions?
DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 15
