POPS! Celebrating Louis Armstrong - the Father of Jazz - June 19

Free Event

Date: June 19, 2016

Jazz musicians have always been inspired by their peers and by the generations of musicians who came before them. This concert celebrates the founding father of jazz and the creative spirit of Louis Armstrong and provides an opportunity for Interplay’s faculty to honor Armstrong’s legacy in their own unique way. Armstrong was the source of inspiration and provided the model for a means of expression that lives on, bringing the joy of spontaneous, creative music-making to all. “Louis Armstrong is jazz. He represents what the music is all about.” — Wynton Marsalis
