Miami, Oct. 28, 2022 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Arts and Philosophy Department continues its successful jazz series, Jazz at Wolfson Presents, on Tuesday, Nov. 1, with Wolfson Jazz Ensembles directed by Dr. Michael Di Liddo. This and all Jazz at Wolfson Presents concerts are free and open to the public.
The Wolfson Jazz Ensembles consist of three groups of exceptional music students. The Horace Silver group takes its name from the legendary pianist and composer of the 1950s and ‘60s. The Blue Note group pays tribute to the famed jazz record label of numerous groundbreaking recordings. Both groups help young musicians develop by presenting a wide range of jazz styles.
The program’s most mature group, the Hard Bop Jazz Ensemble, has included some of South Florida’s best emerging musicians. Over the years, the ensemble has performed at jazz festivals in Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands. The group has received DownBeat magazine awards in both composition and performance.
All three groups offer an evening of diverse jazz styles that have been greatly explored through intense individual practice and group rehearsals.
“These students are excited about their musical growth and are ready to perform some the jazz repertoire’s famous compositions,” said Dr. Di Liddo, ensembles director.
MDC’s Jazz at Wolfson Presents features live performances that run monthly from September through April.
