April 23, 2021 • 4:00 pm PDT
As part of Smithsonian Jazz’s celebration of Women in Jazz during this year’s Jazz Appreciation Month, the National Museum of American History is thrilled to present “Keeping the Rhythm: An Exploration of Women Drummers.”
This livestreamed program will be hosted by Dr. Sherrie Maricle, drummer, educator, and music director of The DIVA Jazz Orchestra, FIVE PLAY and co-leader of the 3D Jazz Trio. Maricle will share the important and often overlooked contributions of American women drummers throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. She will also be joined by award-winning writer, producer, and director Judy Chaikin, whose groundbreaking documentary The Girls in the Band featured stories of women jazz musicians.
