PLAYERS BY THE SEA PARTNERS WITH JACKSONVILLE NEW MUSIC SOCIETY
Updated: Feb 14
Players by the Sea is so excited to announce their partnership with fellow nonprofit organization, Jacksonville New Music Society (JNMS)! The JNMS serves as a catalyst for growth in the Jacksonville music community by commissioning, promoting, and performing new works. We are so excited to foster a relationship with this incredible group who will bring new musical experiences to the beaches & greater Jacksonville!
We kick-off our partnership later this month with saxophone sensation, Adam Larson In Concert at Players by the Sea!
From adamlarsonjazz.com: "Described by critic Howard Reich of The Chicago-Tribune as “a player for whom the word ‘prodigious’ was coined”, by Peter Hum of the Ottawa Citizen as “a saxophonist who brings Donny McCaslin and Mark Turner to mind”, and by Nate Chinen of The New York Times as “the sort of jazz musician who gets flagged early on as a promising talent and then hustles to meet every requirement for success”, Larson has garnered numerous awards that distinguish him as one of the most promising artists of his generation. "
You can listen to some of his works on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/0W327ydaBBS8WOaHhe6ulk?highlight=spotify:track:0L2ZnCaQTNosznt3vh05zu
Come hear some jazz tunes and join us in celebrating our new partnership!
The theatre will open at 6:30 pm for pre-concert food & drink along with live music in the lobby. Party with us!
