Jazz AM November: Empress of the Blues, Bessie Smith
Jazz AM, a series of free Saturday morning programs offers a fun, interactive jazz concert for young people featuring music, puppets, improvisation, rhythm, and movement!
The next event is Saturday, November 6th, at 10am. The program spotlights the music of vocalist Bessie Smith!
NOTE: THIS SHOW WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO TAKE PLACE OUTDOORS IN THE NJW PARKING LOT. DUE TO THE CHILLY WEATHER FORECAST, WE’RE HOLDING IT INSIDE OUR FACILITY AT 1012 BUCHANAN STREET.
Seating is limited. If you already have tickets you’ll have the option of attending in person, and a limited number of additional in-person tickets should be available. All children and adults attending in person will be required to war masks. The event will also be streamed live, with free tickets available for the stream.
All persons 12 and older inside the venue must be fully vaccinated and show their vaccination card, ID, and ticket at the door. Per the CDC recommendation, we ask that everyone 2 years and older wear a mask while inside at the Nashville Jazz Workshop. If you don’t have a mask one will be provided for you.
The program, facilitated by trained professionals and Jazz musicians, will engage students, encourage creativity, promote collaboration, and build musical awareness for children age 2-10 and families.
“The impact of music on children has and will continue to be a profound part of children’s foundation,” says NJW Executive Director, Eric Dilts. “Learning about Jazz impacts children’s’ creativity and musical development even before they learn to play an instrument. We are excited to launch this initiative to the heart of the North Nashville community.”
This is a free event, but you will need a ticket for each adult and child. Tickets may be printed or displayed on your smart phone, and must be shown at the door.
For this event, COVID safety protocols will be followed: protocols will be posted and may change depending on conditions at the time.
