Media Arts Council presents a Youth Jazz Performance and Jam Session Series with Saxophonist Chris Oatts and Friends
Suggested Donation: $10
This monthly jazz performance series features young jazz musicians from area high schools and universities as well as a house band of professional jazz musicians. Each month saxophonist Chris Oatts and local rhythm section will kick off the performance by playing a few selections, and local area high school combos will be invited to perform for and sit in with the professionals. Each performance will have a featured guest artist or theme of the month.
Having opportunities to perform with, listen to and engage with musicians who are more experienced and accomplished is a fundamental part of growth as a jazz musician, and has historically been the fastest and most effective path to authentically passing on the aural tradition of the music.
