Grace Kelly Saxophone Clinic – Tuesday, December 5, 2017 – FREE!
On December 5th, Paige’s Music will be hosting saxophonist, singer, composer, producer, educator, and clinician Grace Kelly. One of the most exciting young stars in the industry today, Kelly has performed over 800 concerts in more than 30 countries and released 10 albums to date. A regular on the Tonight Show band with Jon Batiste, Grace Kelly has performed with high-caliber artists like Harry Connick Jr, Wynton Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Martin Short, Maya Rudolph, Emma Stone, Lin Manuel, Questlove, Esperanza Spalding, Lee Konitz, Phil Woods, Ron Carter, David Sanborn, Marcus Miller, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Huey Lewis and Gloria Estefan, among others.
Kelly’s style has been praised as a forward-thinking combination of styles and influences from jazz to pop to Broadway shows to the Beatles. She released her first album, Dreaming, when she was only 12 years old, and has continued to release album after album in the years since. Her 2016 album Trying to Figure it Out was voted the #2 album of the year in the 2016 Downbeat Magazine Reader’s poll, and Kelly herself has been the recipient of numerous listener’s choice awards, including “Alto Saxophonist of the Year” by NYC Jazz Fans Decision 2016.
