2017 True Blue Jazz Student Workshop/Clinic
Friday, October 13 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pmN/A
“I’ve watched the True Blue Jazz organization inspire, encourage and support my students throughout that time. The opportunities and experiences provided by True Blue Jazz have stimulated a life-long love for jazz in the students at Cape and encouraged them to seek personal artistic growth through music. Thank you for everything you do for the students of Cape Henlopen High School and our community as a whole. The Cape Region is a better, more vibrant place because of True Blue Jazz.”
– Chris Burkhart / Cape Henlopen HS Music Director
Our commitment and efforts for Young Student Jazz Musicians is our favorite aspect of True Blue Jazz, and a priority for us. In 2013, True Blue Jazz revived theSaturday Afternoon Free Concert on the Rehoboth Bandstand as a feature venue for the Cape HS Jazz Band….and in 2015, we held our first Jazz Workshop/Clinic, placing our Featured Artist Jazz Players in a mentoring musical exchange with the Cape HS Jazz Band. We continue that as an annual staple of True Blue Jazz Events & Programs. Our 2017 Jazz Workshop/Clinic will be conducted by our FridayNight Headliner Artist & Act – The Paul Carr Quartet.
Paul Carr is President & Executive Director of The Jazz Academy of Music in Silver Spring, MD. Paul Carr also holds the distinction of being the Executive & Artistic Director of the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival, held annually in Rockville, MD. Mr. Carr serves as the Conductor for both the Mid-Atlantic Youth & the Collegiate Orchestras.
This Event is closed to the Public…open only to Students, Parents, & Music Educators.
