SEMJA will give the 2024 Ron Brooks Award to Wendell Harrison.

Harrison will receive the award from SEMJA on Sunday, February 25, at 4:00 p.m. at the Kerrytown Concert House. He will bring along a quartet with his wife Pamela Wise on piano. The complete make-up of the group will be announced in our December newsletter.
