SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Students from the Jazz Studies Program of Hoff-Barthelson Music School will perform "All That Jazz," a program of original and jazz standards, in Scarsdale’s Chase Park on Sunday, June 5.
“All That Jazz” will feature several of the Music School’s student jazz ensembles performing a variety of jazz standards, the music of Frank Zappa, and pieces composed and arranged by the students and faculty.
Jazz faculty members will join the students for several pieces in a variety of instrumental combinations.
“All That Jazz” is made possible, in part, by ArtsWestchester with support from Westchester County Government and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
Hoff-Barthelson’s Jazz Studies Program is under the direction of jazz saxophonist Ed Palermo, a well-known performer and recording artist in the jazz world. Recently, Palermo was named to The Daily Beast’s list of “The 40 Most Intriguing Musicians of 2016” for his work in rock repertory big band.
The school's jazz faculty includes several of the most distinguished jazz artists in the New York area. Hoff-Barthelson incorporates private lessons, jazz ensembles and jazz improvisation, arranging and theory into its comprehensive curriculum.
