Celebrate Women’s History Month with a special look at Women in Jazz. Lecturer and master flutist Galen Abdur-Razzaq will highlight the influence women had on the evolution of jazz and their significant contributions to the art form. This program will be hosted virtually by the Tuscarawas County Public Library System Wednesday, March 23 at 6 p.m.

Women have been involved in jazz since the early 1920s, not just as vocalists, but as instrumentalists, composers and arrangers. Galen will discuss some of these great female artists as well as perform live from Florida.

Galen studied at the Berklee College of Music and holds a Master’s Degree in fine arts and education from Rutgers University. He has performed internationally and domestically for more than 30 years and is best known for his smooth, rich sound.

This program will take place virtually through Zoom. Space is limited but registration is required. Interested parties can register by visiting the library’s online event calendar at or by calling 330-364-4474.
