Landfall Foundation presented Laura Crane with a check for $2000.00 towards the NC Jazz Festival masterclasses which are given to local students.
On Feb 5th, 2016 we had 7 masterclasses for local students given by: Adrian Cunningham-reeds/woodwinds, Nate Najar-guitar, Chuck Redd-percussion, Jonathan Russell-violin, Bria Skonberg-trumpet, Dion Tucker-trombone, and Herman Burney-bass guitar. Many of the students attending the masterclasses at the Hilton had the opportunity to attend Friday evening’s performance of the North Carolina Jazz Festival! This is made possible by grants and donations to our jazz education program. The students are always thrilled to see and hear jazz performed by the all-star musicians that conducted the masterclasses.
