ROCK AND ROLL From Bill Haley to Bo Diddley, Elvis Presley to the Rolling Stones, Rock and Roll has defined popular music for over half a century. While the genre owes much of it’s early influence to Jazz and the dance music of the swing era, we also have fun by giving some beloved Rock and Roll classics a jazz twist. The Jazz Playground is a fun, interactive and educational live performance program inviting kids and adults of all ages to dance, sing and swing to the rhythms of jazz. Presented by a live band, The Jazz Playground introduces the instruments and core concepts of jazz through familiar songs, sounds and rhythms. We explore history, language and diversity through an organic and participatory jazz performance featuring a rotating roster of guest teaching-artists. Each class will introduce a new instrument or style, and will take a trip to different places or times in history to explore how jazz shaped modern music in the 20th century onwards. Above all, The Jazz Playground invites children of all ages to find their own creative space, develop their imagination and to collaborate through music.  More Info
