Subject: Greater Detroit Jazz Society Jazz-o-Gram: Live Jazz the Week of February 4, 2014

Dear Jazz Fans,

I'm really short on time today so am focusing on new events for this week and will catch the rest up later. We certainly hope that you're surviving this snow, and more coming tonight. Enough, already!

One more time – our Mardi Gras concert is almost here!  We need to turn in our headcount for food if you are planning to attend, although we will sell a few tickets at the door but you may not get to eat! Just kidding. If you are coming, please call Rosemary Newton[masked] to secure your spot! The flier is attached for the details …

One more time for this one as well – it's so worthwhile:  Scott Gwinnell advises that the application process has begun for his 6th annual 2014 Metro-Detroit Jazz Workshop. THE MDJW is a weeklong, day-camp-like jazz education session in July, hosted by some of the best educator/musicians in SE Michigan. age 11 to 111, any instrument, any experience level is able to join. There are multiple-level jazz theory, improv, and composition classes to fit all kinds of musicians. Students play a concert at Cliff Bell's Jazz Club. Early Bird 10% off tuition if applying by April 1. This is great for a talented middle or high school music student, amateur or retired musician or college student. Visit the web site:, for more information and online application. Pass the word if you think yo know someone who could benefit.
