LMTA Sponsors In-Person Jazz Workshop January 17th | Extra Quarter
The Lincoln Music Teachers Association will be hosting an in-person jazz experience with Dr Hans Sturm (double bass player) and Jackie Allen (jazz singer) on Monday, January 17 at 1 p.m. at the Fellowship Community Church, 8451 Eagle Crest Rd.
This event will involve students, from grade four to adult, and their teachers. The only prerequisite is that participants are open-minded and interested in exploring new musical ideas that they probably haven’t considered before. The jazz experience will include a short performance, followed by a presentation of various improvisation exercises.
The famous husband and wife duo have toured extensively, performing as soloists and collaborating with many people in the United States and around the world. Sturm is the Hixson-Lied Professor of Double Bass and Jazz Studies in the Glenn Korff School of Music at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Allen teaches music at Doane College in Crete and teaches his adult course, Torch Singer 101, in Lincoln.
Guests are welcome. Send an email to [email protected] at RSVP.
