VJC STUDENT JAZZ SHOW TO HIGHLIGHT INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY

Vermont Jazz Center celebrates International Jazz Day 2015 with a concert featuring students from four of the VJC's student ensembles. On April 30th at 7:00 PM, at the Vermont Jazz Center you can listen to the Youth Jazz Ensemble, the Women's Jazz Harmony Ensemble, the Latin Jazz Ensemble and the Vermont Jazz Center Sextet. Each group will play a set that lasts approximately 30 minutes. The concert is free and open to the public. All donations will go directly to the VJC Scholarship Fund. This event will be a "snack potluck;" if you feel inclined, please bring an easy snack to share with your fellow jazz lovers.

PERFORMERS:
The Youth Jazz Ensemble features students of middle school age who are learning to improvise and interpret the jazz repertoire. They will perform tunes by Eddie Harris, Mark Levine, Sonny Rollins and Jimmy Heath. Each student will have an opportunity to improvise and demonstrate skills that they have learned. The Women's Jazz Harmony Ensemble, under the direction of Anna Patton will perform her tightly knit arrangements that blend close harmonies in the tradition of the Andrews Sisters and Lambert, Hendricks and Ross. The Latin Jazz Ensemble will perform compositions and arrangements by directors, Julian Gerstin and Eugene Uman as well as Latin-Jazz favorites. This year's repertoire includes pieces influenced by the rhythms of Martinique, Cuba and Brazil. The Vermont Jazz Center Sextet is a performing group made up of VJC alumni and professionals led by board member Rob Freeberg. They perform complex , swinging music that is highly arranged and features improvised solos by all members.

The Vermont Jazz Center is happy to collaborate with the Thelonious Monk Institute and UNESCO to celebrate International Jazz Day. It's amazing to think that this concert will be part of a worldwide effort to promote the music of jazz and its power to bring people together in a creative, productive and joyful atmosphere. According to UNSECO Ambassador Herbie Hancock, "On International Jazz Day, jazz is celebrated, studied, and performed around the world for 24 hours straight. Collaborations abound among jazz icons, scholars, composers, musicians, dancers, writers, and thinkers who embrace the beauty, spirit, and principles of jazz, freely sharing experiences and performances in our big cities and in our small towns, all across our seven continents. I can't think of a better way to build peace and cultural understanding, the core principles of UNESCO."

Come enjoy an evening of jazz and excitement. Listen to youth, friends and family members navigate the rhythmical waters of jazz, swing and Latin jazz. Thursday, April 30th at 7:00 PM. Snacks are welcome.
