How Does Jazz Survive (and Thrive)?

Time: April 2, 2019, 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Location: Lender Auditorium, 007 Whitman School of Management

Larry Blumenfeld (Brooklyn,NY)
Larry Luttinger (Central New York Jazz Arts Foundation)

Long past its moment at the forefront of popular culture, jazz finds itself in a challenged space. The club circuit is fading, the music business in disrepair. What makes for a sustainable jazz scene? Blumenfeld considers this question in local and national terms, along with guest speaker, Larry Luttinger.

This dialogue is co-presented by the Setnor School of Music Soyars Lecture Series.
