Come swing with North Carolina Central University’s alumni drummers and Thomas Taylor as they start the school year off with a bang.
Jazz drummer Thomas Taylor and some of the jazz percussion alumni will present a jazz concert and fundraiser in the B.N. Duke Auditorium on the campus of NCCU on Sunday, Aug. 24, at 6 p.m.. In the afternoon, there will be music and percussion-centered workshops starting at 2 p.m., followed by a silent auction starting at 5 p.m. Auction winners will be announced before the final group performs in the evening concert.
NCCU percussion alumni performers include Alvin Atkinson Jr., Larry Q. Draughn Jr., Dan Davis, Jasmine Best and Tyler Leak.
All proceeds will go to the Jazz Studies scholarship fund. The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Thomas Taylor in the Department of Music at NCCU.
