Our faculty here, the Jazz faculty is
amazing. It’s an honor to be working with them and and getting a chance to share
these new ideas and find ways that we can inspire and help our students really
find their unique path here musically Hi, my name is Patty Darling and I am an
instructor of music here in the Jazz department at Lawrence. Not only do we do composition and piano here but this is also the home of the Fred Sturm of jazz
library. It is an absolute treasure of big band music, small group music that we use for performing and sight reading and score study. This rocket Sturminator
has been here as long as I can remember I think that’s a bottle of coke in the
top. So this right here was the concert we just did this fall which was so cool.
It’s it was a huge collaboration with the Jazz Ensemble and studio Orchestra
and then we brought in faculty from the jazz department and we put together a
110 piece Orchestra jazz orchestra and we fit them on stage
and it was absolutely amazing. Feel free to stop by anytime. See you later!
