JAZZ @ Las Positas College

What is Hip? JAZZ at LasPo is! Check out the many performing opportunites that LPC has to offer, from instrumental jazz ensembles to jazz choirs.

Within weekly rehearsals students learn reading a wide variety of jazz charts, as well as the art of improvisation and jazz arranging.

On Oct 22, the Jazz Ensemble performed a benefit concert for local musician and instructor, Dane Post who is living with ALS. It was a special night in many ways including performances of original compositions and a variety of guest artists. Dane is able to compose music through EyeGaze Technology and was delighted to hear three of his pieces performed live that evening. Guest artists included friends and musical colleagues Annie Sampson, John Whitney, Guido Fazio, Spencer Chan, Matt Finders, Tim Devine, Vince Mallone, Ren Whitney and Kelly Fasman who was crucial in putting the concert on.

Next up - WINTER CONCERT - December 13th at 3:00pm. The Vocal Jazz and Jazz Ensembles
