We welcome our newest faculty member, Dr. Kelsey Klotz, who will be leading the Jazz Appreciation online workshop. Dr. Klotz is a lecturer in UNC Charlotte’s Department of Art & Art History, a postdoctoral fellow at Emory University a Ph.D. in Musicology with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, with a piano concentration. We caught up to Kelsey to talk about her background and her choice of topic for this class.
It’s been an unprecedented summer of jazz with the radical shifting of programs to a virtual environment and an expansion from monthly to weekly events, albeit online. Behind the scenes, three summer interns have been a significant resource applying their fresh skill to this transition.
