Blue Note Jazz Festival & JazzReach Present
Get Hip! & Hangin’ with the Giants
Sets at 10AM & 12PM, Doors at 9:30 & 11:30AM


Community Works Theater Connections, in partnership with JazzReach, proudly presents The Blue Note Jazz Festival for Kids! This string of events, taking place at New York City’s own Highline Ballroom, introduces young students to the sound, history, and culture of jazz music and some of its most famous artists.

Today’s 10AM show is Get Hip!, a fun, interactive introduction to jazz that illuminates jazz’s cultural origins, concepts about improvisation, and creative self-expression, and explores the role and resopnsibility of each individual ember of the jazz ensemble. Get Hip! also draws parallels between the ensemble, the bandstand, and community as an effective means by which to promote important social values such as civic responsibility, teamwork, collaboration, and cooperations.

Today’s 12PM show is Hangin’ with the Giants. Staged as a late night talk show, this program features animated likenesses of jazz greats Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Giollespie, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk as show guests, and it affords numerous opportunities for students to interact and participate.
