On November 2, 2011, students of Nativity’s Art Academy course, MAKING THE BAND, attended a performance by internationally-acclaimed jazz musician Wynton Marsalis at the University of Delaware! Wynton Marsalis, a New Orleans native, is the first jazz artist to perform and compose across the full jazz spectrum, from its New Orleans roots to bebop to modern jazz. With more than 70 records, selling millions of copies worldwide, Mr. Marsalis is the recipient of three Gold Records, the National Medal of Arts, and a Pulitzer Prize for Music.
After the performance, Mr. Marsalis and members of his quintet were able to meet with our Nativity students. See pictures and videos of the event below!
