ACTIVITIES OPEN TO VISITORS 

 

Concert 

Saturday, September 24, 2011, 7.30pm / LSU School of Music Recital Hall / $15 

A unique concert with performances by Jazz Harp Academy faculty members, with the course participants as their opening act. You don't get to see a dedicated Jazz Harp performance very often. And listening to both Park Stickney and Carol Robbins at one and the same evening is extremely rare. In combination with excellent players like Bill Grimes (bass), Brett Dietz (percussion), and Kurt Schwab (saxophone) surely a one time chance. We expect this concert to be truly enlightening and inspirational.
