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 an energetic talk show, with a live band on stage to play their greatest tunes! The fun, highly engaging presentation also features a charismatic host.

“It was a lively and interactive show
that brought jazz history to the
students in a fun and creative way.”

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend your field trip to LBC with Art Talks!

Take your students on a self-guided or docent-led tour of our Sculpture Garden. Thoughtfully restored following the 2017 firestorms, our Sculpture Garden is designed to reflect the local Sonoma County landscape. In the Garden, there are two picnic tables with smaller versions of the sculpture elements that you see in the landscape. If you like, have students find new ways to arrange the colorful pieces. Then please leave what they have made for the next visitors to enjoy.

You can sign up for a free docent-led tour right on your School Show application or contact us by email or phone at 707.800.7504!
