April 9-16, Vacek Jazz Artist Residency with Bill Evans

8 Apr

From April 9-16, our Vacek Jazz Artist Residency welcomes the great saxophonist, Bill Evans.  The last time Evans visited MSM, he gave a thrilling performance at our 2009 jazz festival. He made such an impression on our students and guests that the jazz department has been eagerly anticipating his return ever since. This time, he will be expanding on his methods of improvisation and performance practice with our students for a whole week. His latest efforts in jazz education can be found at Truefire as part of their ongoing lessons and workshop series. Here’s a clip:

We could not be more happy to welcome Bill Evans back to MSM and we hope that you will take part in making his residency an educational and joyful one.

The concert will take place Tuesday, April 16 at 7:30p
