School Performance: Paige Hernandez: Liner Notes (KCYS)

Collide with music’s past and present through jazz standards, hip-hop samples, and actual liner notes—album inserts that allow artists to share personal statements of artistic expression with their fans. Paige Hernandez and collaborators Baye Harrell, Akua Allrich, and Kris Funn’s Corner Store Jazz Quintet fuse live music, poetry, theatre, and a multimedia design into an electrifying performance that brings together generations of music lovers in celebration. Sing along, dance, and live tweet while this exceptional troupe uncovers the stories behind some of music’s biggest hits. As Hernandez describes this community gathering, “The love from a Liner Notes audience is enough to move mountains.”

Connects to Illinois Learning Standards in Fine Arts, Social/Emotional Learning, English Language Arts, and Social Sciences.

Recommended for grades 6-12
Performance length: 60 minutes
