Los Angeles, Calif.– The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz will introduce its “Peer-to-Peer” jazz education programs in Miami public schools March 24-28. Combining performance with information, these “informances” will be presented by seven exceptionally gifted high school jazz students from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts along with internationally renowned saxophone recording artist Antonio Hart, vocal sensation Lisa Henry, and renowned jazz educator Dr. J.B. Dyas. Each school visit will include a concert for all students followed by a jazz workshop for each school’s jazz band with the New Orleans students playing alongside and sharing ideas with their Miami counterparts.
The weeklong tour will conclude with two performances open to the public on both evenings:
With Hart and Henry alongside jazz's future “young lions.”, the septet will perform standards, jazz classics, second line music, and contemporary jazz, as well as compositions from Hart and Henry’s latest CD releases.
All proceeds go to support jazz education in South Florida and beyond.
