Twin Cities Jazz Fest, in partnership with MacPhail Center for Music, present the Twin Cities Jazz Fest Master Class Series featuring Ernest Bisong and Greg Byers.
Classically trained violinist Ernest Bisong is considered by many as a rising star on the jazz music scene in the Twin Cities. He continues to further the course of the genre by providing a fresh perspective on improvisation and harmony as he demonstrates mastery of the bebop language through a unique lens on his violin.
Greg Byers, M.M. uses his talents as a performer, composer, educator and producer to share the wisdom and beauty of great music with people of all backgrounds. His relationship with music began at 2 1/2, when he first studied cello in the Suzuki method. In 2008 Greg became the first person in the history of University of Miami to double major in Instrumental Performance/Studio Music & Jazz on cello and bass, Summa Cum Laude.
This series is supported by Hiway Federal Credit Union.
The first 2 master classes featuring Omar Abdulkarim and Chris Smith, are available to stream now.
