Jazz Weekend 2016 Information

The School of Music at Central Michigan University announces the 43rd annual Jazz Weekend Thursday and Friday, February 4 and 5, 2016 on the campus of CMU. Walter White, the great jazz and lead trumpet player, together with his rhythm section, will be our guest clinician and soloist for Jazz Weekend 2016.

Walter’s expressive trumpet-playing has led him to collaborate with many of the top names in music including: Bob James, Dave Holland, the Mingus Big Band, the Woody Herman
Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Gunther Schuller, the Lincoln Center Jazz
Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, The Jaco Pastorius Big Band, and Arturo Sandoval. Read more about Walter here: walterwhite.com
