Spontaneous Duos: An International Jazz Day Event

Join us for the second annual International Jazz Day celebration in Rochester!  


Messenger One

Eastman Community Music School

Performers TBA!

Here’s the scoop (or watch the video from last year here):

17 improvising musicians will take part over the course of 90-minutes. Musician 1 will play solo for 5 minutes and then be joined by musician 2. After 5 minutes musician 1 will leave and musician 3 will enter. Musicians will continue to enter and leave at 5 minute intervals until everyone has played 10 minutes. The playing order will not be revealed to the musicians until 30 minutes before the performance to keep with the spontaneous feel of the event.
