Master Class with René Marie

Date: 
Friday, February 10, 2012 - 10:30am - 12:00pm
Master Class with René Marie

The DC Jazz Festival and THEARC present a master class with renowned jazz vocalist René Marie.  For music students and music appreciation students, this 90-minute session will explore the significant contribution of jazz vocalists in American history and culture.  Jazz, our country's singular original art form, originated and was developed in the United States, and the overwhelming majority of the world's most outstanding jazz artists continue to be from the United States.  Yet many students are unaware of the significance of jazz and its many iconic figures including Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Nancy Wilson, and more.
