Hangin’ with the Giants

by JazzReach

Grades K-4

This enthusiastic multi-media program introduces students to the rich history of jazz and to the names, faces, and music of some of its many masters such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Dizzy Gillespie. Your students will love when the jazz greats come to life before their eyes as cartoon characters on a talk show, with a live band on stage to play their greatest tunes! The fun, highly engaging presentation also features a charismatic host.

“My students loved it! They learned SO much.”

LBC performance may vary.

Education Programs on sale August 7, 2019 starting at 9:00am.
