Jazz Band Masterclass featuring Up & Coming Jazz Players
DC area audiences are invited to hear new players on the regional jazz scene, hailing from Washington, D.C. and surrounding states!
The concerts feature Jazz Band Masterclass groups under the direction of respected jazz artist educators: saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk, pianist Fred Hughes and bassist Amy Shook.
JBM helps gifted adult musicians get "out of the basement and onto the bandstand." Musicians learn and play in combos, the way jazz was meant to be played. When ready, they get gigging!
In the past eight years, the organization has spawned many successful bands. The musicians playing this Twins concert have advanced to the semi pro category. Audiences will find them talented, well trained and ready to groove. Three bands will play each night and the teaching artists will sit in!
The set list is American jazz: from bop to swing, ballads to bossa nova.
Three separate bands will perform in three early sets at 7:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The concert ends at 10:30 p.m.
