Since October 11th, these serious young musicians have been coming to the Goodman Center bright and early on Saturday mornings for 3 hours of work with teaching musicians Hanah Jon Taylor, Rand Moore, Charlie Painter, Zach Watson and Eric Miller, and they’re now ready to show friends, family, and community members what they’ve learned in the program’s first five weeks in a free 30-minute performance as part of the Center’s Family Fun Night event.

The Live Soundz teachers will kick off the concert with the Sonny Rollins standard, “St. Thomas,” followed by the students and their teachers performing in various combinations on Duke Ellington’s “C Jam Blues,” an original piece called “Memories” by Live Soundz student Safi Sinse, Kenny Garrett’s “Sing a Song of Songs,” and wrapping up with Alicia Keys’ “Unbreakable.”

The Fall session of “Live Soundz on Saturday” is made possible by grants to the Jazz Consortium from the John and Carolyn Peterson Charitable Foundation, the Madison Arts Commission (with additional support from the Wisconsin Arts Board), and the Evjue Foundation (charitable arm of The Capital Times).
