We Have Voice Collective

Pitt’s Director of Jazz Studies, Nicole Mitchell Gantt, will be joined by talented New York We Have Voice Collective members María Grand (saxophones), Kavita Shah (vocals), and Fay Victor (vocals) for a discussion panel on Music, Equity and Safe(r) Spaces, followed by a performance of original music. Free presentation at 6:30 followed by the ticketed concert at 7:30.

We Have Voice is a collective of 14 musicians, performers, scholars, and thinkers from different generations, races, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, gender identities, economic backgrounds, religious beliefs and affiliation, which includes Nicole Mitchell Gantt, Pitt’s Director of Jazz Studies. Their mission is to create initiatives that actively enrich our performing arts communities. They focus on bringing awareness to issues of inequity, including but not limited to sexual harassment and bullying, and to shift the cultural landscape within to foster awareness of creating safe(r) spaces.

We Have Voice has previously done panel discussions at several universities, including the New School, Harvard University and McGill University. Although all the members of We Have Voice are all merited musicians, their concert at University of Pittsburgh will mark the first musical performance of the collective.

Friday, January 17 at 7:30 p.m.
