LET MY CHILDREN HEAR MUSIC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created in 1986 to promote the compositional legacy of musician and composer Charles Mingus though publishing, education, archival preservation, and performance. Download printable sheet for more info (PDF).
Charles Mingus is recognized as a major 20th century composer,
whose entire works have been acquired by the Library of Congress
- a first for jazz, and a first for an African-American composer.
Mingus left behind the largest legacy of composition in American
music after Duke Ellington. The Mingus Bands remain devoted
to this vast repertoire, and under the artistic direction
of Sue Mingus, play to great critical acclaim around the world.
The Mingus Bands are available for concerts, residencies,
master classes and commissions.
