The LSU Student Union Theater, in partnership with Campus Life, is proud to present the Langston Hughes Project on Wednesday, March 22, 2017. The Langston Hughes Project is a multimedia concert performance of Langston Hughes' kaleidoscopic jazz poem which Hughes scored with musical cues drawn from blues and Dixieland, gospel songs, boogie woogie, bebop, progressive jazz, Latin "cha cha," Afro-Cuban mambo music, German lieder, Jewish liturgy, West Indian calypso, and African drumming. The performance is brought to life by the extraordinary talents of the Ron McCurdy Quartet.
