Young Jazz Appreciation Night with Eddie Sherman & Peggy Raley
Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
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 the Saturday 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 placing our Featured Artist Jazz Players in a mentoring musical exchange with the Cape HS Jazz Band.
For 2016, we are interested in expanding opportunities for the young jazz students from our community, and others, if possible. That’s why we’ve put together a Young Jazz Appreciation Evening on Wednesday October 12th. It will be a Sussex County Kick Off Event for our True Blue Jazz Series…& we’re looking to make this an annual part of our entire Straight Ahead Jazz Series Concept.
We’re creating a night that will be a mix and mingle for Music Families, their School Music Program Directors, and a number of our working professional Jazz Players that we will invite to come out to play, talk Jazz, and workshop a bit with the kids. You’ll hear the Jazz Players of tomorrow play rehearsed material, and will even have the Pros & Music Directors work them through an impromptu Jazz Jam.
Peggy Raley & Eddie Sherman will Host this new twist on the old “Band Boosters” concept. Food & Beverages will be offered.
