For the second consecutive year, students from the MMG music program participated in the acclaimed Lincoln Center concerts for young people series. On March 13, 2009 students were treated to the entertaining and informative concert/workshop titled “Improvisation is for everyone”, featuring the Erica Von Kleist Quartet. In attendance were MMG participants from MS223, MS254, X296 and Mott Hall High School.
As part of the event, MMG instructors had previously attended a workshop dealing with the subject matter and in turn were able to inform students on what they would be experiencing.
The concert workshop featured a performance by a Jazz quartet and a workshop dealing with the concepts of musical improvisation. Students from the MMG program were able to participate and had a wonderful musical time. We are grateful to the staff of Lincoln Center for their attention and the unexpected tour of the Lincoln Center facilities.
