THE FUTURE OF JAZZ IS IN BLOOMINGTON
Take a glimpse into the future of jazz at our annual musical showcase of young jazz performers. Every spring this concert features some amazing groups from local schools, including Bloomington High Schools North and South and Bachelor, Jackson Creek, and Tri-North Middle Schools, as well as our Jazz Jam participants. A professional guest artist works with the students before the concert and then joins them on-stage.
The 2019 concert was held at the Crazy Horse March 31, with guest artist Richard Dole, a tenor and bass trombonist and educator from the Indianapolis area.
Many thanks to Monika Herzig and her assistants for organizing; David Brent Johnson for emceeing; Monika, Perter Kienle, and Danny Deckard for accompanying Richard Dole; the students and parents who participated; and our sponsors IU Auditorium, Jamey Aebersold, WFIU, the American Federation of Musicians, and the Crazy Horse.
