Multi-Media Jazz Concert: “Jazz Reach”

Marcus Strickland

Due to the lack of arts and music programming in schools today, there are organizations throughout the United States that have devoted themselves to the education of young audiences in this medium.  One of these non-profit organizations, JazzReach,  ”has developed a unique and diverse repertoire of substantive, high quality live educational programs for young audiences that are especially tailored to elucidate the art form and complement a broad range of students’ everyday classroom curriculum.”  Their multi-media programs are highly interactive, entertaining, yet informative.

On February 3rd, both young and old will have the opportunity to enjoy a remarkable evening of jazz, sponsored by the Cal Neva Resort.  This immersive, globally themed main-stage program features performances of all new commissions by prominent, internationally recognized jazz composers hailing from countries as diverse as, West Africa (Lionel Loueke), Israel (Omer Avital), Cuba (Yosvany Terry), Puerto Rico (Miguel Zenon), India (Rudresh Mahanthappa) and the United States (Marcus Strickland).

35 local jazz musicians from Incline Village, North Lake Tahoe and Truckee have trained with these renowned musicians and will perform in the opening piece of the show.  The history of jazz will certainly come alive in the local Lake Tahoe community!
