We've recently completed filming two interviews with the incomparable Ms Elayne Jones. Elayne Jones is one of the most prominent percussionists in the field of American orchestral music. She was chosen personally by Leopold Stokowski to work with his American Symphony Orchestra when it was founded. Ms Jones has been an inspiration and an avid supporter of The Grown Women Dance Collective since first meeting Tonya in 2012. We are honored and humbled to have the opportunity to work with an icon of the orchestral music world.
The location and date of this year's performance will be announced very soon and we know our performers and audience will be as thrilled with the amazing theater we've chosen as we are. In addition to the hard work that this performance and film demands, Tonya has also found time to publish a new website for the GWD Collective. We hope you'll stop by and read about the fabulous artists who will be involved in the 2017 Juneteenth performance.
