Hear it, Feel it, Play it
This piece invites us into the Sedgwick Cultural Center and American Composer's Forum Philadelphia Chapter-sponsored residency of jazz pianist Orrin Evans in Spring 2003, as well as his work with the students of the Center's Teen Jazz Workshop.
The Sedgwick Cultural Center, located in Mt. Airy, the heart of Philadelphia's Historic Northwest, creates an experience that enriches the lives of individuals and of the many communities it serves. The Center's broad spectrum of performing and visual arts programs brings together people of all ages and backgrounds and gives voice and venue to both local and national artists. Drawing on teen jazzophiles from both the city and the suburbs, the Teen Jazz Workshop lovingly spotlighted in the video is one of the Sedgwick programs that create a community of artists to celebrate and advance one of the region's rich musical traditions.
