$28, Students $16
Oliver Groenewald, a trumpeter, composer and arranger educated at University of the Arts (Austria) and The Royal Conservatory (Netherlands), brings his talented group of jazz musicians to Orcas Center for a night of tremendous music. “I want the audience to experience a fresh sound and a deep connection to jazz,” Groenewald notes in his “Meet the Band” video.
Perhaps you h$28ave asked yourself, will America become both the womb and tomb of Jazz? No longer supported in any commercial sense, NewNet proves Jazz still retains its importance. And while NewNet is clearly influenced by the American art form of Jazz, Groenwald’s ear gives it a distinctly European flavor.
“I think the audience is really going to feel the energy from this band. We have a lot of fun on stage and it really comes through,” 1st trumpeter Brad Allison said.
