About the Event

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BIRD—THE MUSIC OF CHARLIE PARKER

an Online Jazz Listening Workshop of the Milwaukee Jazz Institute with Paul Silbergleit

Not merely the most burnin’ alto saxophonist in history, Charlie Parker was the main progenitor of the bebop movement of the 1940s, and by extension, all of modern jazz. Along with fellow bop giants such as Dizzy Gillespie and Bud Powell, he introduced a complex new improvisational language, and a related style of composition, that have had a profound impact on the music ever since. Come celebrate his August birthday with an inside view of his amazing work, guided by MJI’s Paul Silbergleit.

Cost: $15

Attendees need to purchase advance tickets. Attendees will receive a link and instructions an hour prior to the event to allow easy access to the workshop from a computer, tablet, or smartphone via Zoom Video Conferencing. Registration is open until 15 minutes before the start of the workshop. Links will be sent promptly to those who sign up just prior to the start time.
