Under the direction of Byron Stripling, the Columbus Jazz Orchestra (CJO) is proud to celebrate the courage, dignity, and legacy of “the mother of the modern Civil Rights Movement,” Rosa Parks in “Suite Rosa” (January 25-26, 2013 at the Lincoln Theatre). In connection with the 100th anniversary of her birth, this multi-disciplinary concert will recall the day in 1955 when Rosa Parks courageously refused to give up her seat on the bus, and, through modern and historical music and dance, celebrate the African-American story.
