The First Lady, Mrs. Robinson, Malia and Sasha attended a concert at the Jazz Studio held at the East Room of the White House yesterday. The new White House music series featured artists of all ages while 150 local students watched and listened. Mrs. O shared her first moments of jazz with the guests:
“Jazz has been a part of my life since I was a little girl. My mother’s father, who we call “South Side,” had a speaker in every room in his house, and he played it 24 hours a day at—on the highest volume. At Christmas, birthdays, Easter, it didn’t matter, there was jazz playing in our household."
