GOT THAT SWING: THE ART OF THE SOLO
April 27, D.V.H.S. Auditorium
Trumpet player Joseph Boga will bring the big, brassy sound of the Joseph Boga Nonet to the Delaware Valley High School on April 27th. The performance begins at 7 p.m. in the D.V.H.S. Auditorium: 256 US-6, Milford. This concert will be a forerunner to Kindred Spirits Arts Programs' regular season; admission will be free.
Some of the numbers at this performance will include the DVHS Jazz Combo, for whom Boga and his band will have led a workshop. The Nonet will also perform the students the morning of the 27th. The music they present in the evenint will include both big band swing and alternative jazz styles, as befits a musician with Boga's background.
Despite having graduated from The Julliard School just four years ago, Boga already seems to have done it all. Having won the Billy Strayhorn Scholarship at Julliard, he has since performed with Wynton Marsalis (with whom he has studied), Wycliffe Gordon, Vince Giordano and the Night Hawks, Phil Woods, Rick Chamberlain, and the Avalon Jazz Band. He has also played classical music with numerous groups, including the New York Trumpet Ensemble led by Mark Gould. In fact, Boga is so versatile that he's worked with Grammy Award-winning Mark Hudson, who's been a producer for Aerosmith, Ringo Starr, and Eric Clapton.
As mentioned, this performance will take place at Delaware Valley High School, 256-US 6, and will be free. The concert is a production of Kindred Spirits Arts Programs, a nonprofit organization of volunteers that has been bringing quality entertainment to area audiences and programs to school students since 2002.
