Was a packed house at the first Jazz Nite of 2017. Nearly 80 audience members came to hear the fantastic music of students, alumni and mentors. Jazz mentors Wayne Wilkinson, Todd Williams, Lewis Keller, Andy Burtschi, Tom Fowler, Ian Ferguson and Thomas Dawson lead the evening with incredible artistry. Students ages 14 through 18 joined in ensemble from duo with Brigette and Ricky to the full sextet complete with horns!
We also celebrated the 90th birthday of long time jazz lover and Conservatory advocate Jeannie Long. Guest volcalist Charity Sephus serenaded in Jeannie’s honor!
Next Jazz Nite slated for the first Friday of April 2017. Stay tuned!
