Evan Christopher FREE Jazz Youth Workshop
January 21 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
JazzArts Charlotte welcomes Grammy-winning Clarinetist Evan Christopher, as we explore the flare of New Orleans jazz in a small group workshop setting. 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 schooler musicians, with at least a year on your instrument. All instruments are welcome – you are invited to bring it along.
FREE. Registration required
Check out our interview with Christopher here: New Orleans Music is, and is Not jazz
A frequent instructor at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz Academy, Evan Christopher constantly runs clinics, visits schools, and gives master classes and private lessons as he continues to be an outspoken advocate for the preservation of early New Orleans jazz. Christopher is a dedicated musician and scholar, and specializes in playing the Albert system clarinet which is not often heard outside authentic New Orleans music.
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.
