STRAZZ – Fri., Aug. 18, 2017, 7:30-8:00 p.m. in Comma Courtyard, 312 S. Carson St.
Carson City Symphony’s STRAZZ ensemble features some of the area’s top strings students. They play toe tapping jazz and fiddle tunes. Introduced to jazz at a Jazz Workshop for Strings with the Mile High Jazz Band in 2008, the students formed an ensemble 2009. In 2011, STRAZZ performed for the Nevada Governor’s Arts Award Ceremony in Carson City, at which Sue Jesch, their founder and leader, was honored for her leadership in Arts Education.
STRAZZ will perform as a prelude to Starr Nixdorf”s World Dance Open Floor, held the third Friday each month at Comma Coffee. World Dance Open Floor is free, all ages fun — a performance night for dancers much like an open mic for musicians or comedians. Styles of dance include Hip Hop, Irish, Tahitian, Samba, Bollywood, Flamenco, Egyptian Raks Sharki, Hula, Turkish, Bellydance, Ballroom; truly any dance style from anywhere in the world. Tonight’s World Dance is a benefit for Carson City Symphony’s youth strings programs.
All ages are welcome. Free.
