Live Performance Programs
Ensemble-in-Residence (formerly Workshops)
Who: For students K-8; By In-House Jazz & Blues Bands and Teaching Artists
When: During school hours
Professional musicians visit schools and present an engaging concert that traces the history of blues music or jazz music (depending on the ensemble). Students are prepared for the experience by curriculum presented either by a Teaching Artist or by their classroom teacher, and the concert is followed by classroom activities that focus on connecting the material to social studies curriculum and/or music curriculum.
