Project Concept: A composition aimed at children that introduces them to the various instruments and rhythms used in jazz.
The public workshop introduces the audience to the artist’s project. The artist will share their project inspiration, and feature the very first excerpts. The artist will actively engage with the audience in creative ways in a Q&A type format in between musical selections.
Artist Bio: Kobie began his music career teaching in Philadelphia elementary schools. Pursuing a career as an electrician and touring with singer Billy Paul, Kobie will partner with 2013 Kimmel Center Theater Resident and Yale professor of theater, Deb Margolin, to create a project for children using a narrator and jazz band.
The Kimmel Center's Jazz Residency Program is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Presser Foundation.
