Robinson Family Visiting Jazz Artists
A residency made possible by the Robinson Family Fund, established by Ward Robinson (’19 PBC Jazz, ’10 MPH) and Pamela Pittman, is bringing three jazz luminaries to UNCG’s School of Music this year. Saxophonist Julieta Eugenio, Trumpeter Marcus Printup, and Saxophonist Tim Warfield will come to Greensboro for residencies with students and concerts which will be open to the public.
In addition to public presentations, every artist in the UCLS series does important work with UNCG students, such as holding masterclasses and seminars, often just hours before performing on stage. Thanks to The Cemala Foundation, some of these artists also work with K-12 students in the Guilford County Schools.
