A leading voice of the harp today, performer, composer, educator, and concert curator Brandee Younger defies genres and labels. Nominated for a 2022 GRAMMY® for Best Instrumental Composition and NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Album, she has performed and recorded with artists including Pharoah Sanders, Ravi Coltrane, Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden, Common, John Legend, The Roots, Stevie Wonder, and Lauryn Hill. In 2019, she released her fourth solo album, Soul Awakening, and her original composition “Hortense” was featured in the Netflix Concert Documentary, Beyoncé: Homecoming. That same year, Younger was selected to perform her original music as a featured performer for Quincy Jones' and Steve McQueen's “Soundtrack of America.” Younger’s ability to seamlessly inject the harp into arrangements and venues where it has historically been overlooked is a testament to her deep love for and exemplary command of the instrument.

Brandee Younger, accompanied by Rashaan Carter and Allan Mednard, will perform at The Cat in the Cream at 7:30 p.m.

She will also host a master class earlier in the day in Bibbins 237 at 1 p.m.

The performance and master class are hosted by the Oberlin Jazz Society and Crimson Collective.
