Facebook Watch Party: Roberta Piket Sextet featuring Karrin Allyson: Celebrating Marian McPartland @ Flushing Town Hall | New York | United States

Acclaimed pianist/composer/arranger Roberta Piket’s revelatory sextet project shines a warm, loving light on the compositions of legendary jazz pianist Marian McPartland. McPartland was eulogized in 2013 as a supremely elegant and accomplished jazz stylist who gracefully conversed and collaborated with a vast array of fellow improvisers from her perch as a beloved public radio host. Also on stage are Jay Brandford (flute, alto sax), Virginia Mayhew (clarinet, tenor sax), Bill Mobley (trumpet, flugelhorn), Harvie S (bass), Billy Mintz (drums), and special guest five-time Grammy nominated jazz vocalist Karrin Allyson.

Curator Bio:

Katie Fuller had been an educator for eleven years before curating her first show, Race and Revolution: Exploring Human Injustices through Art, in the summer/fall of 2016. The exhibition became the first in a series that examines historical memory around systemic racism in the United States. Still Separate – Still Unequal, a critical examination of school segregation, traveled throughout the Northeast for two years. The most recent exhibition in the series, Reimagining Monuments, was on view at the Old Stone House in Brooklyn from March – June 2019. Starting in February 2020, the Lewis Latimer House hosts Race and Revolution: Home/Land, an examination of the systemic family separation, bounty hunting, and incarceration of runaway slaves in the past and migrant families in the present. She writes curriculum and presents the content of the shows at education conferences, universities, and after-school programs.

Her exhibitions have been reviewed by Hyperallergic, Vice Magazine, Artsy, ArtForum, Daily Kos, The Believer, among others. Katie is pursuing a PhD in Art Education with a certification in Museum Education and Visitor-Centered Curation at Florida State University.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation.
