Eight jazz master musicians to perform in Lincoln Park Jazz Festival
MIDLAND, Pa. – Some of the Tri-State Area’s top high school musicians will have the chance to learn from and perform on stage with eight great jazz music professionals in the second annual Lincoln Park Jazz Festival on Sunday, April 11.
Dale Fielder on alto saxophone, Eric DeFade on tenor sax, James Moore on trumpet, Jeff Bush on trombone, guitarist Ken Karsh, David Budway on piano, Paul Thompson on bass and Jim Rupp on drums will perform in the 3 p.m. Sunday concert in Lincoln Park’s mainstage theater.
Up to 60 area high school musicians will learn from the masters in a day-long workshop on Saturday, April 11. The top 20 students will be selected to perform in the Sunday concert at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center. The first half of the concert will feature the students as a band, with the master musicians soloing. The professionals take over the stage for the second half.
“The master teachers are looking forward to this. They don’t often get to play together,” said Sal Aloe, director of partnerships and special projects at Lincoln Park.
Tickets for the jazz festival are $10 for adults, and $5 for students, and may be purchased from the Lincoln Park Box Office in person or by calling 724.643.9004.
The workshop is sponsored by Lincoln Park and the center’s community arts education program, the Henry Mancini Arts Academy.
Aloe said area high school band directors were notified of the jazz workshop and encouraged to have their students apply. Space in the workshop remains available. Aloe may be contacted at 724.643.9004, extension 1673.
The program for the student half of the concert includes the selections “Body and Soul,” “Fanfare for the Common Man,” “Groovin’ High,” “Mambo Diablo” and “Computer.”
Dale Fielder, a native son of Midland, PA, is a regular on the national jazz scene.
