NJMEA All State Jazz with Wallace Roney
Date(s): November 17, 2017 at 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: NJ Performing Arts Center (NJ PAC)
Discover the next generation of jazz artists at this annual concert event, which brings together some of N.J.’s very best young jazz musicians and Honors Choir for a dynamic performance with special guest Wallace Roney.
Jazz trumpeter Wallace Roney has been an integral part of the band with Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Carole King, Joni Mitchell and many others. He is one of the few musicians in his generation who learned and perfected his craft directly from alliances with Jazz Masters, most especially Miles Davis.
This event is presented by NJPAC’s Arts Education Department and the New Jersey Music Educators Association.
