In partnership with Jazz Arts Project
Monday, Apr 29 at 7:00 PM | FREE EVENT
To celebrate National Jazz Appreciation Month, we are partnering with Jazz Arts Project to host their Talkin’ Jazz Series. Focused on Women in Jazz, this series will feature a weekly talk and Q&A panel moderated by Jazz Arts Artistic Director, Joe Muccioli with guest speakers who are Jazz luminaries and Scholars. This Free community event is a great introduction to jazz for novices or a wonderful extension of knowledge for connoisseurs. Join 1, 2, 3 or all 4 weeks!
Champian Fulton is a mainstay on the vibrant New York Jazz scene as well as the finest clubs and concert halls around the world. She has performed with musical royalty such as Lou Donaldson, Frank Wess, Erick Alexander, Buster Williams, and Louis Hayes. From New York to Barcelona, Champian’s swinging style and charismatic performances have made her a guardian of the legacy of Jazz. Music education is also a concern near and dear to her heart, having been inspired and mentored by the late great Clark Terry in his tireless advocacy for the perpetuation of the craft. Champian strives to impart this unique knowledge to students around the world. In addition to her involvement in the Litchfield Jazz Camp and the Rutgers Jazz Institute, and as integral part of our own Jazz Arts Academy faculty, Champian has also been featured in many of our own concert presentations through the years.
