American Riffs

Grades 3-6

Tue Mar 7 — Thu Mar 9, 2023

Orchestra Hall

Multi-talented Minnesota Orchestra trumpet player Charles Lazarus is skilled at showing the many connections between classical music and that great American tradition, jazz. Here students will encounter jazz-infused works such as Duke Ellington’s It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got That Swing; Gershwin’s languid Summertime, from Porgy and Bess; and dynamic selections from Leonard Bernstein. What’s more, Lazarus, backed by a quartet of jazz stars, will perform a handful of dazzling trumpet solos.

Things to Know

  1. Prepare for the concert with a curriculum coming approximately six weeks before your trip to Orchestra Hall.
  2. Tickets can be reserved in advance with no payment due until Fall 2023.
  3. Does your school need financial assistance for an upcoming trip to a Young People’s Concert at Orchestra Hall? Request a bus subsidy.
