PUYALLUP – Artists on the national jazz scene will perform at the Pierce College Jazz Expo on June 2. In addition, four of the bands will offer mini-workshops.
The event will be at the college’s Puyallup campus. Tickets are just $10 and available at the door.
Artists scheduled to perform include: Thomas Marriot Sextet (Tribute to Art Blakey), Greta Matassa quartet, McTuff, Pierce College JazzEnsemble and Pete Christlieb Quartet.
Musicians of all abilities and ages, as well as non-musicians, may attend the workshops. Musicians are welcome to bring their instruments to the clinic because some clinicians may ask students to participate.
Clinics will go on simultaneously with performances, so plan accordingly.
“Pierce College is thrilled to be able to host its annual Jazz Expo, where people can listen to and learn from world-class jazz artists in an intimate setting,” said Kareem Khandi, Pierce College jazz band director. Kandi, a saxophonist and composer, also leads The Kareem Kandi Band, which plays throughout the Pacific Northwest
