MDC’s Jazz at Wolfson Presents Wolfson Jazz Ensembles
Start Date: 11/7/2017Start Time: 5:40 PM
End Date: 11/7/2017End Time: 6:40 PM
Event Description:

Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Arts and Philosophy Department will continue its successful jazz series, Jazz at Wolfson Presents, on Tuesday, Nov. 7, featuring Wolfson Jazz Ensembles, directed by Dr. Michael Di Liddo.

Three groups comprise the jazz ensembles at Wolfson Campus. The Horace Silver group takes its name from the legendary pianist and composer of 1950s and ’60s jazz. The Blue Note group pays tribute to the famed jazz record label of numerous classic and groundbreaking recordings. Both groups help young jazz musicians develop by presenting a wide range of jazz styles.

The program’s most mature group, the Hard Bop Jazz Ensemble, has included some of South Florida’s finest emerging musicians. The ensemble has performed at major jazz festivals in Switzerland, Italy, and the Netherlands and has received DownBeat magazine awards. Students from this ensemble have performed with Arturo Sandoval, David Liebman, and Pit Bull.

“It’s been a productive term,” said Dr. Di Liddo. “The students have explored a variety of jazz styles from several composers. Works by Horace Silver, Charlie Parker, Benny Golson, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington and Sonny Stitt were of particular interest and will be included in their performance. The students are anxious to share their experience of studying and developing jazz improvisational technics necessary for performing compositions of these jazz greats.”

MDC’s Jazz at Wolfson Presents features live performances that run monthly from Sept. through April. All Jazz at Wolfson Presents events are free and open to the public.
