Oral History Project:
Jazz at Westminster Presbyterian Church
The Lived Experiences of DC's Musicians
Funded by a generous grant from DC Humanities, this Oral History Project focuses on the lived and shared experiences of jazz musicians who have performed at Jazz at Westminster Presbyterian Church and who were born, raised, or call Washington, DC their home.
Westminster Presbyterian Church, DC’s Jazz Church, located in Southwest, Washington, DC, has a long and storied history of supporting local musicians, and the DC community-at-large through jazz and blues music performances.
Through this Oral History Project, we explore and share the interconnected stories of DC musicians as it relates to Westminster Presbyterian Church. We inquire on the role DC musicians have played in defining and representing the culture of Washington through their personal and lived experiences.
