A New Family Concert for Storyteller, Jazz Quintet - 06/26/09 10:27 PM

Very Cool.

http://jumpinjazzsymphony.com/wb/ exposes young children to Jazz via storytelling and music.

"Jumpin’ Jazz - A Swinging Jungle Tale is a New Family Concert for Storyteller, Jazz Quintet and Orchestra built on the premise "Imagination is the Key." It is an entertaining and educational mixture of song and story about the adventures of a 7 year old girl named Claire and her jungle animal friends.

Jumpin’ Jazz combines the swinging energy of the jazz quintet with the powerful yet playful expression of symphony orchestra. This innovative toe - tappin’ production stimulates the imagination and invites young ears to appreciate an original American art form - Jazz! - and the classic European art form - Orchestra! "

Our own Steve Barta played a major role in putting this together.
