For the last two years, KNKX has welcomed droves of students from Seattle JazzED's Advanced Summer Institute into our Seattle studios for a performance, marking the end of their week-long workshops. This summer, we're pleased to present the concert at Rainier Arts Center in Columbia City which will be recorded and videotaped. Over 30 students will perform in combos under the watchful eyes of their mentors: Garfield High School alum and trumpeter with The Westerlies, Riley Mulherkar; fellow Garfield alum and New York native, saxophonist Roxy Coss; and one of Seattle's most beloved Latin jazz pianists, Marina Albero. KNKX's Abe Beeson hosts.
The concert is free and open to the public, and will commence at 3 p.m. Parking at the venue is limited but there are parking lots close by, as well as street parking. We hope you can be there to cheer on all of these incredibly talented youngsters. Thanks to Seattle JazzED Education Director Kelly Barr Clingan for her vision and support.
