|Juneau Jazz & Classics brings Awadagin Pratt to JAMM|
This year, Glacier Valley was honored to host two Jazz & Classics artists: The Jasper Quartet and Awadagin Pratt. Both were able to work with our kindergarten violinists. They encouraged musicality, proper technique and performed right alongside them. What made Awadagin's visit so special was that he specifically asked to work with the "music teacher in Juneau with the El Sistema nucleo." For the Juneau community, his request confirmed that JAMM is part of a recognized national network and that the work its doing is supported by others thousands of miles away. Thank you, Awadagin. Your gentle spirit and ability to connect with our kids made your visit a memorable one!

Here's a short clip of them playing E String Concerto and Variations on Boil Them Cabbage Down.
Thank you, Juneau Jazz & Classics, for bringing the community into the school and the school into the community. Happy 25th Birthday!
