Matinee Live Music Performance
We have an exciting educational live-music experience opportunity for students grades 4-12.
Capital Public Radio and the Harris Center in Folsom have partnered to present world renowned jazz clarinetist Ken Peplowski and his group in a student-only concert/demo/chat exploring Swing and Jazz, and discussing Benny Goodman’s historic 1938 concert at Carnegie Hall. This 10 a.m. concert on January 19th is in advance of that evening’s sold-out performance featuring Peplowski with the Sacramento Jazz Orchestra in a tribute to the 80th anniversary of the Carnegie Hall concert. They will also be distributing a brief educational/interactive handout for teachers to use with their students prior to coming to the concert. Tickets are $5 per student however ticket and transportation funding support is available.
