November 18th, 11:00am-1pm at The Stage Door Theater
JazzArts Charlotte welcomes Bria Skonberg for a jazz educational workshop. As a way to deepen the interaction of our national jazz performing artists with the local music community, JazzArts Charlotte welcomes student musicians from the Charlotte area and beyond to learn from this world-renowned jazz innovator.
This applied workshop is open to middle and high school-aged musicians, with at least one year of experience on their instrument. All instruments are welcome – you are invited to bring it along.
FREE. Registration required.
Described as “one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation” (Wall Street Journal), Bria has performed with Jon Batiste, Wycliffe Gordon, Stephane Wrembel, Steven Bernstein and U2.
She has been at the forefront of a revival of classic American music as both a performer and educator, programming concerts and workshops for students. A 3X Juno Award Nominee, Bria’s debut LP on Sony Masterworks won for Best Jazz Vocal Album and made the Top 5 on Billboard jazz charts. Bria has recorded on over 25 albums and recently released her sixth studio solo album “Nothing Never Happens.” A 6x Downbeat Rising Star, further accolades include the Jazz at Lincoln Center Swing Award, Best Vocal and Best Trumpet from Hot House Jazz Magazine and Outstanding Jazz Artist at the Bistro Awards.
Thank you to the program sponsors and supporters, who each bring jazz alive in Charlotte: Infusion Fund, Knight Foundation, Doris Duke Foundation, North Carolina Arts Council, Arts & Science Council and O’s Place Jazz.
