September 13, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


PRISM in the Parks with Melissa Aldana and Terell Stafford: 9/13 @FDR Park Philly
The intrepid PRISM Quartet (saxophones) launches the third phase of its colossal HERITAGE/EVOLUTION commissioning project with PRISM in the Parks, free concerts in three Philadelphia parks featuring Blue Note recording artist/tenorist extraordinaire Melissa Aldana and jazz trumpet virtuoso Terell Stafford. PRISM, Aldana, and Stafford bring their music to Gorgas Park in Roxborough (6300 Ridge Ave.) on 9/12 @ 5 pm; FDR Park in South Philly (1500 Pattison Ave.) on 9/13 @ 6 pm; and Penn Treaty Park in Fishtown (1301 N Beach St.) on 9/14 @ 6 pm. Rain dates for each concert are noon the following day. No tickets or reservations are required and alcohol is strictly prohibited. Exploring saxophone’s dual lineages in classical music and jazz, concerts feature the world premiere of Aldana’s new work, Reflections, a meditation on the pandemic, plus music by Stafford, John Coltrane, Miguel Zenon, Tim Ries, and Chris Potter, celebrating the release of PRISM’s new album, Heritage/Evolution, Vol. 2.
