In recognition of Black History month, “Delta Days 2019 will conclude Friday, February 22, with a performance by master flutist and lecturer Galen Abdur-Razzaq of Flute Juice Productions, Orlando, Florida.

Designed with students and young adults from the area in mind, Abdur-Razzaq will also discuss the impact that jazz had during the Civil Rights movement of the 20th century. He will perform at 10 a.m. The public is invited and admission is free.

Abdur-Razzaq, known on stage simply as Galen, will take the audience through the history of how jazz influenced the American Civil rights movement. He will discuss and perform jazz pieces by known jazz artists to provide an understanding and appreciation of jazz, its historical significance, and its role in the American civil rights movement.

Galen’s intellectually stimulating lectures and powerful jazz performances make him one of the most popular artists on university and college campuses in the country. From Montclair, New Jersey, he has performed both domestically and internationally for more than 30 years.

A master flutist, Galen is widely known and respected as an arranger, composer, director, writer and educator who has performed and recorded with some of the world's greatest musicians.  A former student of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and a graduate of Rutgers University, he holds a master’s degree in fine arts and education.

Church youth groups, families, and school classrooms (students/educators) are encouraged to join other community members for this special engagement.  It promises to be both entertaining and educational for all ages.
