An accomplished violinist, Renee Baker has shifted from purely classical to jazz music and she is passionate about the switch. Her Chicago Modern Orchestra Project and FAQtet perform, nationally, and globally! Renee said, ““There is an urgent, compelling element to being able to let go, allowing yourself to shout and having it manifest itself on paper and then sent out into the world as performance. I don’t do a lot of second guessing…I don’t take back prayers – the original shout-out is the most genuine.”
I create music. I compose it. I play it. I paint it.
These ladies are rehearsing their songs to be performed on November 14 for students at Dillard Center for the Arts in Fort Lauderdale. The concert will include the music of Robin Avery and Joan Cartwright with accompaniment by Paul Banman (p), Jimmy Daniel (d), Anthony Turner (b), Malcolm Black (sax), and Wayne Rediker (guitar).
The challenge of being a composer and musician for a woman can lead to strange and wonderful twists in our economic paths. Sometimes, we experience dread and other times our lives, much like a roller coaster, swings up and over all the cares we think we have in the world. As creatives, we find other means of expression than making music. For Teri Wilson, developing her own line of bath and beauty products is filling the need for both creativity and income.
