Festival update

Today is Friday and the festival is well underway. We have had a good audience for the first three days of festival concerts. Tuesday brought Brad Muirhead to perform and work with our workshop students on listening and improv skills. Karen Graves was in fine form Wednesday performing on various woodwinds and working with vocals. Thursday brought our first double bill with trumpeter Al Matheson performing and working with our students through a series of three masterclasses on improvisation in the afternoon, offering some great advice to our students. Thursday evening featured vibrophonist Marty Franklin with Nino DiPasquale in a concert of jazz standards and a tribute to Milt Jackson.

Here is a picture of Marty Franklin performing at Beaches in Tsawwassen on Thursday evening. We had a good crowd for the event despite some confusion in location.
