Audition recordings for the Legacy Ensembles must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before August 14, 2020.
The Nash Legacy Ensemble is holding auditions for two jazz combos for the 2020-21 academic year. Directed by two of the leading jazz musicians/educators in the Southwest - Mike Kocour (Director of Jazz Studies, Arizona State University) and Eric Rasmussen (Director of Instrumental Music, Scottsdale CC) - students will develop the art of small jazz ensemble improvisation, composition, and arranging in a highly-supportive and collaborative manner.
This tuition-free program selects up to 12 musicians to perform regularly throughout the year and produce a CD of their music at the end of the academic year. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Legacy Program will begin the year online and move to an in-person model as the situation in Arizona becomes safe for students and teachers.
Each play-along is the required number of choruses.
Those who are interested in participating in this program (or educators that wish to refer students) should contact Dr. Ben Hedquist at email@example.com.
