The work-in-progress performance is an opportunity for the jazz residency artist to present an early draft of their new compositions. The artist performs all the new material they’ve written during the residency for the first time before taking questions and direct feedback from the audience. This input is vital for the artist as they finish writing their project. It's a special BYOB event and tickets are free with a reservation!
