Jazz fans and families will want to mark their calendars for the second annual Paul Montgomery Memorial Father’s Day Jazz Concert, a special Father’s Day concert featuring local and national jazz musicians.
The concert will feature Dr. Ronald Carter, the director of Jazz Studies at Northern Illinois University.
In keeping with the family focus of the Concert, Dr. Carter will perform with his daughter, Demetria Carter, a singer who studies at North Carolina Central University. Also performing will be the Triangle Youth Jazz Ensemble and the Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra both of which are directed by Dr. Gregg Gelb, and Kathy and Chris Gelb, daughter and grandson of the late Paul Montgomery, a longtime musician in the Raleigh area and beloved “Uncle Paul” of WRAL.
Music lovers are in for a treat in hearing Dr. Ronald Carter. He serves as lead artist for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Band Director Academy and education consultant for the Essentially Ellington Program. He has performed with Clark Terry, Lou Rawls, Jimmy Dorsey, Terrell Stafford, and many others. He is in Downbeat Magazine’s Hall of Fame and has recently performed at the Chicago Jazz Festival.
