Antonio Hart Sextet
Saturday, December 7
Antonio Hart’s real study of Jazz began at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. There, he studied with Bill Pierce, Andy McGhee, and Joe Viola. The three teachers gave him the foundation he needed to develop into a professional musician. Hart balances his time as a tenured Professor at The Aaron Copland school of Music, Queens College, as well as traveling on the road with his band, The Dave Holland Big Band, and The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band. He is constantly trying to get to higher levels on his horn and in his writing. This performance is presented by Kente Arts Alliance.
