Renowned Jazz Musician Takes the Stage at VES

On Friday, the students of VES had the opportunity to meet and work with internationally renowned jazz musician Stephanie Nakasian from Charlottesville, Virginia. In an afternoon workshop, Stephanie ran a group of students through various jazz “drills” teaching syncopation and the importance of improvisation in jazz. Later in the evening Stephanie and her jazz trio performed a public concert in VES’ Garmey theater. Thank you, Stephanie, for lending your wisdom and inspiring a new generation of artists.
