Brigham Young University’s School of Music will present “Jazz for Kids II,” with the Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band as part of the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Family Concert Series on Saturday, March 5, at 11 a.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall of the Harris Fine Arts Center.
Admission is free, thanks to a generous donation from the Sorenson Legacy Foundation. Guests age 2 and older require a ticket. Tickets can be reserved at familyconcerts.byu.edu
Directed by Steve Call, the BYU Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band will play the music of New Orleans, a city where elements of spiritual songs, blues, ragtime and military bands merged to give birth to Jazz, America’s unique contribution to the world of music. The audience will learn about and listen to the music of Buddy Bolden, Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver and Louis Armstrong, who were the first great jazz musicians.
The Beverley Taylor Sorenson Family Concert Series was created to introduce the joy of music to children and youth. All family members are encouraged to attend regardless of age.
