Marcus Anderson Events Moved to CFAC, 6-8:30 p.m.
Today’s panel discussion with Marcus Anderson, Prince’s longtime saxophonist, who now tours with CeeLo Green and owns his own coffee label line, has been moved to 6 p.m. at the Community Folk Art Center (CFAC) at 805 E. Genesee St. Originally scheduled for noon in Bird Library, the event has been postponed, due to a high-wind advisory.
From 6-7 p.m., Anderson will participate in a panel discussion with moderator Tanisha Jackson, CFAC’s executive director, and James Gordon Williams, an assistant professor of African American studies and an authority on Prince’s music. Afterward, Anderson will lead a master class for musicians of all instruments and abilities until 8:30 p.m.
Both events are free and open to the public, and are presented in honor of Black History Month. For more information, contact CFAC at 315.442.2230, and include any accessibility accommodation requests.
In addition to primary funding from the Syracuse University Humanities Center and CNY Jazz, Anderson’s visit is co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Music Histories in A&S, CFAC, the Goldring Arts Journalism Program and A&S.
