The San Luis Obispo County Jazz Federation is privileged to showcase the 2023 winners of their “Young Jazz” music scholarships on Sunday March 19 at 4pm at Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church in San Luis Obispo. The student musicians will play individual and group selections, accompanied by Gary Drysdale on guitar, Ken Hustad on bass and Darrell Voss on drums.
This program, started in 1983, awards scholarships to talented and deserving students from local high schools and colleges in an effort to further musical development and to keep the jazz tradition alive. The scholarships this year were funded in part by pianist David Norum.
The show starts at 4 pm (with doors opening at 3:30). Admission is FREE but on-site donations are encouraged and appreciated. Free tickets are available at the door or through my805tix.com. Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church is located at 1701 Fredericks Street in SLO. See www.slojazz.org for more information.
