An evening of jazz
On Monday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m., Rocky River Chamber Music Society will present something a little different by hosting an evening of jazz. For a short while, the usually-sedate sanctuary at West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church will become the home of a different kind of music.
Bob Sneider, associate professor at the world-renowned Eastman School of Music, will lead several colleagues in a lively evening of jazz music. Composer, guitarist, and educator, Bob Sneider has been a member of the faculty at the Eastman School since 1997. Before that time, Sneider had toured several years with two-time Grammy winner, Chuck Mangione.
Other notable musicians with whom Sneider has performed, toured, and recorded, have included Nat Adderley, Joe Locke, Pat Bianchi, Grant Stuart, Etta Jones, Don Menza, and many more. Sneider has performed in major festivals, concert halls, and jazz clubs throughout North and South America, and Europe.
The Rocky River Chamber Music Society is delighted to be able to continue its 63rd season. If appropriate, the Society will continue the wearing of masks during its fourth concert on April 4. There will be both a live audience, and live streaming for those at home via a link at rrcms.org. The church is located at 20401 Hilliard Blvd. in Rocky River.
Carol Jacobs is a retired archivist, librarian, and curator who resides in Westlake and serves on the board of the Rocky River Chamber Music Society.
