This is the final concert of the 2012-2013 term for the Metropolitan Jazz Workshop program. The program is under the leadership of Clarence Smith who also serves as artistic director.

The faculty includes A-List artist/educators: Bill McKemy, Stan Kessler, Jason Goudeau and myself.

The program is based upon a proven and progressive syllabus that has produced most of the leading talent among the next generation of Kansas City grown improvisers and jazz artists.

The program contains students ranging from grade 6 to grade 12; and, we work with students who are of beginner, intermediate and advanced skills.

The above band contains 7th graders to 11th graders – no, really!

We start again in the Fall – join us …

Peace, Cb
