Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative announced a free Jazz Workshop with famed jazz trombonist, producer and educator Delfeayo Marsalis on May 18 at the Duke Energy Theater at Spirit Square.

Known as one of the nation’s top jazz musicians, Marsalis comes from a family of musical geniuses. He, along with his father Ellis and brothers Branford, Wynton and Jason, Marsalis, earned the nation’s highest jazz honor – a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award.

“Having a musician and educator the caliber of Delfeayo Marsalis coming to Charlotte is an amazing opportunity for area students who are interested in learning more about jazz improvisation,” said Jazz Arts Initiative president, Lonnie Davis. “We can’t begin to express our extreme gratitude to Mr. Marsalis for donating his time for this incredible workshop and for the fundraiser. Of course all of the Marsalis brothers are legendary in the world of jazz and this is a supreme gift being given to Charlotte.”

Musicians of all ages are invited to bring their instrument to learn from Marsalis and improve their skills in this intensive 2-hour hands-on workshop.  The workshop is free, but space is limited. Those interested can register online at www.thejazzarts.org.
