 Vision Festival 22 Celebrates the Career of Multi-Instrumentalist,
Instrument Designer, and Educator:
COOPER-MOORE
Performing on Monday, May 29

On Memorial Day, May 29, 2017, Arts for Art officially opens Vision Festival 22 at historic Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village. This first night will honor Cooper-Moore for his Lifetime of Achievement.  The renowned multi-instrumentalist, educator and raconteur Cooper-Moore, is an artist whose music has been informed by his own struggle for freedom and who personifies the ideals upheld by AFA.

Born during segregation in Southern Virginia, Cooper-Moore came of age playing his music on piano in church. In his early 20s, he was an active member of the civil rights and peace movements, often aligning himself with radical Catholics such as the Berrigan Brothers in their protests for nuclear disarmament. Upon moving to New York in the late 1960s, Cooper-Moore became a pivotal member of the free jazz movement.  His tenure with the late saxophonist and visionary David S. Ware began in 1970s as part of the Jazz Loft at 501 Canal Street. Cooper-Moore’s primary instrument is the piano, but he has become well-known for the many instruments he has designed and built, most notably the diddley-bow, a long-necked single string bass or dulcimer played horizontally while seated.
