Jazz Academy Jam Session: The Music of Billie Holiday

August 13 @ 6:00 pm

The Jazz Academy Jam Sessions are a community-focused, curated jam session series held the second Tuesday of each month in the Jazz Academy. Jazz musicians of all ages and experience levels are invited to participate in the jam, as well as community members who wish to watch. Each session will have a theme with a list of tunes that will be drawn from.

This jam session will be led by vocalist Mary McClendon and will feature tunes sung famously by Billie Holiday, delving into the artistry and style of her music. We invite musicians and community members to come watch and/or play at this jam!
