Music Generation Wicklow and Bray Jazz Festival: Supporting young musicians

Wicklow jazz festival
Music Generation Wicklow is delighted to sponsor a short Bray Jazz Festival workshop led by renowned trumpet player Dave Douglas.

Dave will touch on many topics and provide a new insight and inspiration to musicians young and old.

Dave Douglas is a band leader, composer, teacher and one of the leading trumpet players in contemporary jazz for a generation. His unique contributions to improvised music have garnered distinguished recognition, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, an Aaron Copland award and two Grammy nominations.

Taking a broad look at great music of the past, Douglas and visiting artists will encourage participants in fresh ways of thinking about music and music making.

In non-competitive environment participants explore their common passions for music, examining the tradition to find an individual approach to new music – looking at the past to create the future.

The workshop is free to attend and we are encouraging under 18’s with an interest in trumpet or jazz music to register.

Because space will be limited, it is advised that participants should contact the box office at Mermaid Arts Centre (01-2724030) to secure a place.
