Arts for Art is proud to honor multi-instrumentalist Cooper-Moore with the Lifetime Achievement Award at Vision Festival 22. Join us for a special Under_Line Salon with Cooper-Moore on March 16 at David Gage String Instruments. VISION returns to Historic Judson Memorial Church May 29 – June 3. Born in segregated Virginia, Cooper-Moore came of age as a musician and active member of the civil rights and peace movements. He became a pivotal member of the Free Jazz movement beginning with his tenure with David S. Ware in the 70s as part of the Jazz Loft at 501 Canal Street.
Cooper-Moore’s primary instrument is the piano, but he has become well known for the many instruments he has designed and built. He is an important educator, inspiring generations of young artists through Head Start and other music programs around the world. Enjoy Music, Conversation, Food & Wine
