Jamey Aebersold

Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative is teaming up with the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture to present a free Jazz Workshop with international music educator Jamey Aebersold.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011 from 10:15 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The program is part of the Wells Fargo Community Celebration and will take place at the UNCC Center City Campus, located at 320 East 9th Street in Charlotte. Musicians of all ages are invited to bring their instrument and improve their jazz playing skills with this exciting and intensive three-hour hands-on workshop. The workshop is free but space is limited so pre-registration is required at www.theJazzArts.org. For questions, contact 704-336-9350.

“Having a music educator the caliber of Jamey Aebersold coming to Charlotte is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for area musicians who are interested in learning more about jazz improvisation,” said Jazz Arts Initiative executive director, Lonnie Davis. “His skill and ability to engage and involve his audience for a true hands-on learning experience will be something they will never forget.”
