This program will feature a performance by the Allen Turk Burke Quintet. Allen’s talent on keyboard and vocals and skill as a music director has been tapped by celebrated performers such as the Spinners, Patti LaBelle and Marvin Gaye. Attendees will be enchanted by Allen’s interpretation of jazz and R&B classics.
These concerts are a great way to share jazz music with children that will be fun for everyone! These hour-long programs are presented by the Learning Curve at Central Library in partnership with The Indianapolis Jazz Foundation and Indy Jazz Fest. This series is made possible by Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation. Details
