It’s that time of year again, like seeing the first falling leaf of autumn. Limerick Jazz Workshop will be starting its fifth year in a few weeks time and we are seeking participants for our adult workshops (regular ensembles, singers and beginners) and our junior workshop.
As before our adult workshops will be on Tuesday evenings at the Limerick Learning Hub’s dedicated music facility in Kileely. The beginners’ group will be from 6-7pm and others from 7-9pm. The junior workshop will be on Saturdays from 12-2pm. Location will either be at Peter Dee’s Academy on O’Connell Avenue or Kileely if we need the extra space in the LLH Music Hub.
Here are the dates for Autumn semester (all adult dates Tuesdays unless otherwise stated, Saturdays for juniors). Mid-term break is w/c Oct 31 so there will be no activity that week.
September 20, 27
October 4, 11, 18, 25 (performance)
November 8, 15, 22, 29
December 6, 8 (Thursday performance)
October 1, 8, 15, 22
November 12, 19, 26
December 3, 8 (Thursday performance)
As usual cost will be €20 per session (concessions, beginners and juniors €10), so total cost will be €240 (€120) for regular ensembles and singers, €120 for beginners and €90 for juniors.
As usual we try to keep things fresh so we have our first master-class for all students on Friday October 7, when David Liebman will do a class before his gig at Dolans. David Liebman is recognized as an outstanding musician and educator, and played extensively with Miles Davis in his early career. We’ll be in touch soon with details of the full programme for Limerick Jazz Society’s Autumn season.
Both existing and prospective participants might like to check out our YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/limerickimprov?feature=mhee where they will find videos of our two end of term gigs from 2010-2011 plus some outstanding educational material.
