A New Project For Music Education!

7 May

I am excited to announce that I am working on a new project with legendary Sacramento musician/educator Harley White Jr.

The project is called “Louis and The Wolf.”

In this project, the 1936 Sergei Prokofiev symphony, Peter and The Wolf, will be adapted and reimagined to incorporate the instruments, players and history of Jazz music with Louis Armstrong taking the place of the stories main character. Hence, “Louis and The Wolf.”

This innovative program would serve as an introduction to Jazz music, reigniting a connection to an important musical heritage while compensating for lost music and arts education programming in our schools and communities.

There are more details to come, but in the meantime, we have created a fundraising event to help get this amazing music and arts education project off the ground.
