July 29, 2008

EPHRAIM - The Juilliard School and the Snow College Horne School of music are hosting the fourth-annual Juilliard Jazz Rhythm Section Workshop beginning tomorrow on the Snow College campus.

The four-day event is targeted to high school and college musicians and music educators. The Juilliard faculty list includes Carl Allen, Drums; Ben Wolfe, Bass; Benny Green, Piano; Rodney Jones, Guitar; and Snow College faculty member Scott Wilson, trumpet.

The workshop also includes a faculty concert Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Jorgensen Concert Hall of the Eccles Center in Ephraim. Tickets will be available at the box office the night of the show.

The workshop is one piece of an existing collaboration between the Juilliard School in New York and Snow. The relationship is the only of its kind in the country.
