The Jazz Event

Please join us for an exciting night of jazz in a benefit concert for the jazz program of the Berkeley Unified School District. The concert will feature performances by the Willard Middle School Jazz Band directed by Roland Brown, the King Middle School Jazz Band directed by Nancy Boyles, and the Longfellow Middle School Jazz Band directed by Megan Ratliff. Three noted jazz artists, all faculty members of the Oaktown Jazz Workshop, will accompany the bands: Ravi Abcarian on bass, Danny Armstrong on trombone, and Richard Howell on saxophone.

The proceeds from this benefit concert will help defray the cost of instruments, music, guest artists, and coaching for the young jazz musicians in our Berkeley public schools. The growing middle school jazz program gives students the chance to participate in performances, clinics, and exciting educational opportunities.

Please note that this show starts a little earlier than usual. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. See the future of jazz in Berkeley and support your local musicians from your local schools.
