Music Monday is a free and open-to-the public monthly concert series hosted by The Forum. The concerts will take place in The Forum's ground-floor Atrium on Monday evenings, once a month.
The January event will feature players from the vibrant and forward-looking Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance Program. This on-campus program brings together the many talented and creative jazz players at Columbia University, providing lessons and ensemble practice that incorporate a wide array of stylistic and rhythmic designs. Columbia's strength is its interdisciplinary approach to jazz studies, and the LAJPP is a central part of a larger mission which sees jazz as a music without borders and a mode for integrating scholarly inquiry with innovative teaching and community dialogue.
