Walker|West Student Ensemble Joins PaviElle French & Friends

May 22, 2022 | 6:30pm | Fitzgerald Theatre

Join us for a very special evening featuring Emmy Award-winning, interdisciplinary artist PaviElle French, alongside outstanding local musicians, members of her illustrious 6-piece band, and a student ensemble from Saint Paul’s Walker West Music Academy. This concert at the historic Fitzgerald Theater will feature all original music by PaviElle, including the world premiere of a new work, commissioned by Schubert Club, celebrating themes of Black liberation, and youth empowerment. Weaving together a tapestry of Jazz, Soul, Hip-Hop, and Classical music styles, the work reflects PaviElle’s response to current happenings in our country.”

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Generous support has also been provided by Bill and Susan Sands and the I.A. O’Shaughnessy Foundation.


**Capacity is limited and COVID safety precautions will be observed.
