Hope you can join me (virtually) as I give a presentation/demo at the Berklee Global Jazz Institute 6th Annual Symposium Friday / October 15, 2021 / noon EST
Personally, BERKLEE has always represented a premier institution for contemporary music. Its jazz program sets a high bar for excellence in Jazz. Having been invited to present my own work was unexpected and highly appreciated. Beyond being a cure for rampant pandemic-itis, it is a heartfelt honor. I'll be there in person. If you wish, you can attend free at this link. I'm on at Noon, Friday / October 15, 2021
The whole program looks to be dynamite.
