The University of the District of Columbia is once again partnering with DCJF on music and education programs, as part of its ongoing Jazz Alive series. The Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage will host the festival’s salute to legendary vocalist-pianist Nat “King” Cole celebrating the centennial of his birth, including free concerts featuring eight evenings of singing pianists in the grand Nat Cole tradition.
