A talented group of international jazz musicians will convene at the University of Pittsburgh for the 45th annual Pitt Jazz Seminar and Concert, the longest-running event of its type in the country.
From Nov. 2 through 7, the campus will be alive with Jazz Week activities—guest lecturers, a performance by the Pitt Jazz Ensemble, the screening of a jazz film, and free seminars by the guest musicians. All events are open to the public. The week culminates with the Pitt Jazz Concert at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 7 in Carnegie Music Hall, 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland.
Guest jazz artists this year include Kenny Barron, piano; Mino Cinelu, percussion; Jimmy Cobb, drums; Robin Eubanks, trombone; Robert Hurst, bass; Jimmy Owens, trumpet; Tineke Postma, saxophone; and Pharoah Sanders, tenor saxophone.
Barron, Cobb, and Owens are National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters. The entire ensemble will perform under the direction of Geri Allen, pianist, associate professor, and director of Pitt’s Jazz Studies Program, which is in the Department of Music within the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences.
