JAZZREACH ANNOUNCES 2015-’16 NATIONAL TOURING SEASON. 
OVER 30,000 YOUTH IN MORE THAN 25 U.S. COMMUNITIES TO BE
INFORMED ABOUT AMERICA'S GREAT JAZZ TRADITION

Trinity County is fortunate to be treated to two JazzReach performances:

On April 11, Trinity County students will be treated to an interactive multi-media jazz production by the Metta Quintet at the Trinity Alps Performing Arts Center. 

In response to the overwhelming need for supplementary arts programming, JazzReach has developed a unique and diverse repertoire of substantive, high quality live educational programs for young audiences that are especially tailored to elucidate the art form and complement a broad range of students' everyday classroom curriculum.

All of JazzReach's educational programs for young audiences are highly immersive and interactive and are as entertaining as they are informative and actively engage students in an analysis of:

  • the cultural factors that have come together to make jazz such a compelling art form
  • the social conditions that shaped the music's development
  • the immense impact jazz has had on the sound and evolution of indigenous American music

“STOLEN MOMENTS”: THE FIRST 100 YEARS OF JAZZ

On Monday, April 11 at 7 pm, Trinity County will be treated to a captivating immersive, live multi-media concert program by the METTA QUINTET, of JazzReach from New York.  The program is committed to challenging convention and expanding the boundaries of the live jazz experience.  

“Stolen Moments” introduces audiences to jazz music's rich history and to the names, faces and music of some of its many masters.

On a broader level, “Stolen Moments” also highlights the interplay between the jazz movement and the evolution of American culture throughout the 20th Century, emphasizing the ways in which jazz has acted as a unifying force, bridging cultural, ethnic and economic differences; stimulated cultural fusions and new stylistic idioms; exemplified democratic ideals; and influenced other genres of music, both in the U.S. and abroad.

The Jazz Concert will be held at the Performing Arts Center.  While the admission is free, we gratefully appreciate all donations that can be used to support our Music Education for Children Program.

The Trinity Arts Council has partnered with the Trinity Office of Education and Chico Performances University Public Events to bring JazzReach to Trinity County.
