Kick off your weekends right this September: join Brooklyn Music School for a series of live, outdoor, "happy hour" concerts on three Fridays this month.
Faculty from the venerable neighborhood institution -- who are musicians and bandleaders in their own right -- will entertain with jazz standards and new material at a fabulous Fort Greene location, 7-Corners. And if you have musical chops, you're invited to jam along with them!
Closing out the series is award-winning jazz trumpeter, Duane Eubanks. Despite being raised in a musical family, this Philadelphia native didn't consider music as a career until college, when he joined his university's jazz band. From there, he went on to study in master classes with Dr. Billy Taylor, Wynton Marsalis and Johnny Coles. In his career, he's crossed over to play and record with such artists as Alicia Keys, Wu-Tang Clan, Kirk Franklin and Mos Def. When he's not performing or touring, Duane focuses on jazz education: he is a valued and popular member of the BMS faculty!
We are thrilled to present this music series in partnership with Brooklyn Music School, a Fort Greene community institution since 1912. Learn more about their programs and classes on their website: www.brooklynmusicschool.org.
