Maya is kicking off Friends of Wilmington Parks' 7 week 2017 Summer Concert Series in Brandywine Park. These free concerts will be on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM to dusk.
Maya has been singing at a variety of social and cultural events in Wilmington since she was 10 years old. Her musical education at Kuumba Academy and then as a vocal major at Cab Calloway School of the Arts also nurtured her development as a singer. In Middle School, Maya realized her ability to sing jazz after joining her school’s jazz group, “Jazz Chords”; she then traveled around singing at various venues and jazz competitions with the group. In 2013, she was honored to be a part of the American High School Honors Performance Choir that gave her the wonderful opportunity to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in NYC.
The Sugar Bowl is on the north side of the Washington Street Bridge in Brandywine Park. The Park is dog friendly, with a dog park in the upper part of Brandywine Park.
