In observance of Black Music Month, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum presents Live at the Lewis with UPENDO featuring Brandon Woody. The band will perform two concert sets on Saturday, June 12. (12:30 pm and 3:00 pm).
Brandon Woody, a jazz trumpeter, model, and the lead for the band UPENDO, is a Baltimore native and a Baltimore School for the Arts alumnus. He studied at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music and Brubeck Institute in California. In 2015 he started his band UPENDO and was named one of the rising young performing artists in the Metro region. Brandon has shared the stage with Quincy Phillips, Ray Angry, Benny Maupin, Stefon Harris, Danilo Perez, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Steve Wilson. And he has performed on world-class stages such as Jazz at Lincoln Center, Monterey Jazz Festival, Sydney Opera House, the Lyric Opera House, Bohemian Caverns, Aaron Davis Hall, and The Kimmel Center, to name a few.
Brandon has curated jazz compositions for several vocal and hip-hop albums, along with film scores.
