Come and experience the incredibly multi-faceted harpist, Dr. Ashley Jackson, bring her story to life through the power of music!

Praised for her rhythmic precision and dynamic range, harpist Dr. Ashley Jackson enjoys a multifaceted career as a highly sought-after musician and collaborator in New York and beyond. As a highly versatile artist, she has developed a unique "groove beyond gentility" on her instrument (I Care If You Listen). Throughout her academic and professional careers, Dr. Jackson has demonstrated a commitment to diversity and inclusion within higher education and the performing arts, firmly believing that a deeper understanding of cultural and ethnic diversity is critical to intellectual and artistic development.

Dr. Jackson's Planetarymuse is a continuation of the conversation in the Planetarymuse Forum. Donations to support the artist are welcome. Dr. Jackson will receive 100% of the proceeds from this event!

This Planetarymuse is presented by the Groupmuse Foundation’s Planetary Music Movement. A bridge-building endeavor, this movement, guides Groupmuse to overcome the historical dominance of European ethnocentrism within the classical music tradition, by celebrating historical and contemporary musical traditions of the planet, particularly and imminently through the inclusion and celebration of works by artists of African descent. You can learn more here.
