We kick off our sixth season by wishing "Trane" a very happy 91st birthday with sax great and educator, Teodross Avery. Born on this date in 1926, saxophonist and composer John Coltrane ushered in a fresh new sound in modern jazz, and continues to inspire the next generation.
Both fun and educational, Family Matinees provide a window into the exciting world of live jazz. Each one-hour matinee features live performance, audience participation, Q&A, and amazing music.
