JazzErie is excited to announce that world renowned jazz violinist Christan Howes will be coming to Erie to put on, what is sure to be, a fantastic concert!  Christian will be performing on March 1st at 8pm in Walker Recital Hall on the campus of Mercyhurst University.  Christian will also be putting on a free jazz/string educational workshop before the concert at 4:30pm in the Mercyhurst ensemble room located in the basement of the D’Angelo Performing Arts Center.  This is the perfect opportunity to get some insight from a world class musician and artist such as Christian.  This workshop is a great opportunity for aspiring jazz and string playing musicians to learn about this great art form.  Tickets price for the concert will be $15 for non JazzErie members, $10 for JazzErie members, and $5 for students.  Here is just a little bit about Christian and what you all are in store for!  We can’t wait to see you all there!

Not only is there great jazz to be had here in Erie but if you feel like a nice road trip there are so many great venues to check out!  We are lucky here in Erie with being located by larger cities with a great music/jazz scene.
