Stolen Moments - 11:00AM
Stolen Moments is a thoroughly captivating and informative program that introduces audiences to jazz music's rich history and to the names, faces and music of some of its many masters.
On a broader level, Stolen Moments also highlights the interplay between the jazz movement and the evolution of American culture throughout the 20th Century, emphasizing the ways in which jazz has acted as a unifying force, bridging cultural, ethnic and economic differences; stimulated cultural fusions and new stylistic idioms; exemplified democratic ideals; and influenced other genres of music, both in the U.S. and abroad.
Get Hip! - 12:30PM
Get Hip! is a fun, interactive introduction to jazz that illuminates the art form's cultural origins, concepts about improvisation and creative self-expression and explores the role and responsibility of each individual member of the jazz ensemble and how they all must work together to serve and achieve the collective goal of making great music.
Get Hip! also draws parallels between the ensemble, the bandstand and community as an effective means by which to promote important social values such as civic responsibility, teamwork, collaboration and cooperation.
