The Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech and the Office for Diversity and Inclusion reflect on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with violinist Diane Monroe in a special program featuring her jazz quartet and vocalist Paul Jost. Drawing on the passionate music of the Civil Rights Movement, these extraordinary artists relive, revive and refresh songs from Bob Dylan, Gil Scott Heron, Richie Havens, Joni Mitchell, Pete Seeger, Dr. Billie Taylor, and many others who contributed to the soundtrack of an era. Trained as a classical violinist, Monroe bridges the worlds of classical and jazz music. As a chamber artist, she has performed with Arnold Steinhardt, Yo-Yo Ma, and Cecil Licad. She has toured for over a decade as first violinist of the Max Roach Double Quartet and the Uptown String Quartet, and has performed with renowned jazz artists such as Percy Heath, John Blake, Dave Grusin, Joe Lovano, and Wycliff Gordon.
