Once again, September is swinging -- every Friday evening throughout the month, thanks to the prolific musicians from Brooklyn Music School (BMS)! These talented teachers know how to jam -- and you can join them, at these lively street jazz sessions, free and open to all. No instrument? No problem -- just pull up a chair and enjoy the show! You can even grab dinner to go from a FAB restaurant nearby and bring it to the plaza!
Opening the BMS Jazz Series this year is Jeff Newell. Jeff is the Wind Instruments Chair at BMS, and he's accomplished on the saxophone, flute and clarinet. Although he has played with various musical notables over the years and continues to perform and record with his own group, he is most proud of his many students, some of whom have gone on to become professional musicians. "I work to demystify music for my students, helping them perceive it as another language of human communication," Jeff says. "Learning to make music teaches us to work together and opens up channels through which we share emotional and spiritual joy."
The BMS jazz music series is presented in partnership with Brooklyn Music School, a cultural district community institution since 1912. Learn more about their programs and classes on their website: www.brooklynmusicschool.org.
