A Taste of Jazz at Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCa) in Pompano Beach will feature a new kind of combo! Entertaining and educational performances of the musical genre will be accompanied by wine tastings. The event will be located in an intimate art gallery setting. The introductory events of the jazz series will spotlight the musicians of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band, under the direction of Martin Hand. The performances will take place from 7-9 pm on April 4 and May 2, 2019. Tickets are $10-$20 for each event. You can get more information at www.baileyarts.org.
“A Taste of Jazz is a fun way to learn more about the celebrated musical genre without feeling intimidated or overwhelmed,” said Jody Leshinsky, Cultural Venues Programming Manager. “So many people want to learn more about this original American art form but do not know where to begin. We created this event series for them! And by adding wine tastings from local vendors, it will truly become a fun-filled social event.”
The Gold Coast Jazz Society has been bringing jazz concerts, education and outreach programs to Broward County since 1992. They have worked to maintain and preserve the heritage of jazz music by celebrating jazz’s evolution over the past 100 years.
Session Topics include:
Where in the World is Jazz? – Where did jazz originate and how did it get to what it is today? Join Martin Hand and the trio as they explore the origins of the music of jazz, how it moved throughout America and became the music it is today.
