Terri Lyne Carrington + Social Science

GRAMMY® Award-winning drummer, producer, educator, activist, and 2019 Doris Duke Award recipient, Terri Lyne Carrington and her band Social Science boldly confront social justice issues with their eclectic and collaborative approach. Carrington earned GRAMMY awards in 2012, 2014, and with Social Science she earned a 2021 nomination for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. Carrington, also the founder and artistic director of the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice, received the nation’s highest honor in jazz—the 2021 National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Jazz Masters Award.

Etienne Charles & Creole Soul

As a Trinidadian raised in a musical family, trumpeter Etienne Charles feels a deep connection to the Carnival traditions. Hailed by The New York Times as “an auteur” and by JazzTimes as “A daring improviser who delivers with heart-wrenching lyricism,” NPR’s All Things Considered says of Charles, “his records filter calypso, reggae, and other Afro-Caribbean music into a modern jazz conception.” Charles is a Guggenheim Fellow in the Creative Arts, Associate Professor of Jazz Trumpet, and Teacher Scholar at Michigan State University, and has been written into US Congressional Record for his musical contributions to Trinidad & Tobago and the World.

Vinson Fraley Jr.

Vinson Fraley, Jr. hails from Atlanta, Georgia. He began his training at age 14 under the direction of Lynise and Denise Heard and studied voice, dance, and drama at DeKalb School of the Arts. Fraley received his BFA in dance from NYU Tisch in 2015. He was a member of A.I.M (Abraham.In.Motion) prior to joining the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company in 2017. Vinson has and continues to collaborate with Carrie Mae Weems on various projects. He most recently collaborated with Sterling Ruby on a video for the MET. Fraley teamed up with Janet Biggs and Earl Maneein in a performance presented alongside CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). Vinson has also performed at New York’s Frieze Art Fair and presented solo work in Berlin and France.
