HAPCO LIVE 3-Year Anniversary
HAPCO LIVE 3-Year Anniversary Celebration and Benefit concert.
Join HAPCO Music Foundation in celebrating HAPCO LIVE’s three-year anniversary. HAPCO serves over 100 student musicians entertaining the community, and sharing the joy of great jazz. On stage will be some of their best musicians, performing their favorite jazz tunes.
HAPCO will proudly present the Micah Silverstein Quartet and the Andrew Kennedy Quartet, performing acoustic, straight ahead jazz. Both are students studying jazz in Central Florida, working alongside professional musicians.
HAPCO’s music arts and culinary programs help young people in our community use their artistic and musical talents as a vehicle to fund education or as a profession. Camps, clinics, master classes and private instruction are taught by industry and community professionals the students can relate to, identify with and learn from. The programs encourage artistic expression, technique and public performance.
Through HAPCO LIVE, student musicians entertain at community events and venues. Performers are typically alumni and volunteer youth advisors of HAPCO programs. This program gives young musicians paid performance experience, live work with other musicians and valuable community connections. LIVE programs are in Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa, Florida; Dallas, Texas; and Atlanta, Georgia. Since 2016, HAPCO LIVE performers have earned over $25,000 at paying gigs, to help them fund their secondary education.
This event is being co-sponsored by the City of Winter Park, and Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts. 100% of ticket sales and silent auction proceeds will go directly to the HAPCO Music Foundation.
Note: Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts members must pay for this event.
