Buffalo Jazz Composers Workshop

Music in the Woods is a series of FREE, eclectic and intimate Sunday performances set outdoors in Artpark’s scenic Lower Park Emerald Grove area overlooking the Niagara River. These social distanced concerts present a slate of both major national and local talent in concerts ranging from jazz to Baroque and new music.

The Buffalo Jazz Composers Workshop performs all original modern Jazz compositions and has collaborated with writers, poets, actors, singers and other artist to create their own unique sound. With the pandemic quarantine the group has continued to meet remotely and has collaborated on a series of new compositions related to the challenges of this time. This will be the first public performance by the group in many months and is sure to express the unleashing of their collective creativity. The band includes: Sara Rogers – vocals; Tim Clarke - trumpet; Nelson Rivera - saxophone; Ken Kuriscak – saxophone; Alec Dube – vibraphone; Jared Tinkham – guitar; Joe Goehle – bass; John Bacon – drums.

Attendance is free, but limited to 50. RSVP no later than 24 hours prior to reserve your spot by emailing [email protected]
