The Mayerson Master Artists Series in association with Jazz Alive will be presenting a master class for the jazz department at the School for Creative & Performing Arts (SCPA) by renowned bassist and jazz educator, Christian McBride, on Friday, April 28 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. The Master Artists Series is part of the Mayerson Artistic Excellence Program at SCPA. Since 2010 the Mayerson Program has presented master classes by some of the world’s greatest musicians, dancers, artists and writers to enhance the pre-professional, college-preparation curriculum at SCPA. Prior jazz artists include Chick Corea, Branford Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Benny Golson, and Fred Hersch. The Master Artists Program would like to thank Polina Bespalko and the Xavier University Music Series without whom the Christian McBride class would not be possible. The master class is open to area jazz students based on space availability. Interested students should contact Jeff Seibert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
