SANBORNTON — Sant Bani School will be adding a jazz concert in this year's concert series. On Friday, April 4, Delfeayo Marsalis, New Orleans' own trombonist, producer and composer, will take the stage. Later in the spring on Friday, May 9, the famed Cavatina Duo will return with its virtuoso guitar and flute repertoire.
Performing Arts Department Chair Craig Jaster says, "It wasn't until I heard these world class artists play in the intimate and informal setting of our Studio Theater that I became a fan of chamber music myself. And the performers tell us that the setting has inspired them as well, both to bring adventurous, exciting programming and to share with our audiences a little of their thoughts on the music, which they have expressed with the same intelligence, eloquence and passion with which they play."
As a jazz pianist, Jaster does not disguise his excitement at adding a jazz concert to the series. "Our young people get as little or even less exposure to jazz as they do to classical music. But thanks to several very generous new donors who are helping to make it possible, this year the students are going to hear some jazz up close that they will not forget. Not only is Delfeayo one of the finest trombone players today, he is also a great entertainer who I guarantee will bring New Orleans charm, warmth–and heat!–to the bandstand."
The Concert Series exemplifies Sant Bani School's commitment to the arts. Bringing outstanding musicians for live performances helps foster a lifelong love of music. Look for more details of the artists' programs on the school website santbani.org.
