Terry Jenoure and The Portal will perform her new composition on June 11, 2022 at 3pm at the Northampton Center for the Arts. Terry Jenoure (composer, violinist, vocalist) has assembled a sextet of her longtime collaborators. The stellar lineup includes Angelica Sanchez (piano), Wayne Smith (cello), Avery Sharpe (bass), Joe Fonda (bass), and Reggie Nicholson (drums). After 30 years as Director of UMass’ Augusta Savage Gallery and while serving concurrently for 20 years on Lesley University’s graduate faculty, Jenoure now focuses her attention on projects most close to her heart, namely music memoir. Her new composition highlights recently discovered family letters dating back nearly 100 years. They depict the conflicted thoughts of her Jamaican immigrant grandfather, written to his wife while detained at the Canadian border.
