Huron Valley Jazz Workshop celebrates winter’s end with March 29 performance at HVCA.
Swing into Spring with the Huron Valley Jazz Workshop, a performance at Huron Valley Council for the Arts, will give those attending a respite from the drab winter season.
That’s the hope of members of Huron Valley Jazz Workshop, who will perform at 4 p.m. March 29.
“The end of March can be a dreary experience for Michiganders as we anxiously wait for winter to release its grip,” explains Steve Dorer, group spokesman. "This concert will help alleviate this dreariness with a program of swinging music celebrating all things Spring. There will be a brief intermission with refreshments, as well as an opportunity to donate to the Huron Valley Council for the Arts. Admission is otherwise free.”
For those unfamiliar with the group, Dorer says, “The Huron Valley Jazz Workshop is a collective of musicians that gathers weekly to play music that historically has been called jazz in an environment free from compromise and filled with supportive enthusiasts of this art form. We gather weekly and work on the skills necessary to play this music in the absence of distractions. It is common for efforts such as ours to take place in a bar, or coffee house. We are thankful for the Huron Valley Council for the Arts support and the opportunity to use their space each Tuesday evening.” The group meets from 7-9:30 p.m.
Sioux Trujillo, HVCA executive director, adds, "The jazz workshop offers an opportunity for anyone to learn Jazz techniques in a fun relaxed atmosphere that does not require the musician to hang out at the bar or sign up at an open mic night only not to get on stage."
