Jazz Festival Returns to Temple College This Weekend
Get your sunglasses and your heavy dark coat because things are getting bright and cool this weekend in Temple in a jazzy sort of way.
According to a mailer from the college, the festival is "an entertaining and educational weekend of outstanding jazz that will bring together top professional artists, clinicians and hundreds of college, high school, and junior high musicians for clinics, competitions and great performances."
The center of the action for the clinics and concerts will be in the snazzy Mary Alice Marshall Performing Arts Center auditorium, which is "jam central" for the Jazz Festival.
Tickets are available at the door. Daily passes are $5 for students and $20 for adults. If you want to make sure you're in, advance tickets may be purchased at the Temple College Fine Arts Office. Call them for more information at (254) 298-8555.
Temple has its own jazz thing going on. The College has an ensemble, as does Temple High School. Expect many of the players with those groups to mix and mingle at the Festival.
BONUS: Kenny Werner's concept of "Effortless Mastery" is presented by Kenny himself in this talk at Google (!) because he's kind of a big deal. Dig for yourself:
