Last Sunday, we hosted our 2nd annual Open House at the Blue Raccoons’ Studio. It was a lovely afternoon filled with food, drink and community all set to wonderful live jazz performances by our students. Our master teacher, Carey Smith, kicked off the afternoon with several lively duo performances with Bhagwan Khalsa on bass. Our students took over and played a variety of jazz standards in duo and trio formats providing us with a festive atmosphere perfect for enjoying each others’ company.
The event is a terrific opportunity for our students to perform the music they’ve learned to play in front of an enthusiastic audience of new and old friends! Our annual Open House, much like our seasonal Gaze concerts, give our students a unique and intimate venue in which to play and share their music in front of an appreciative audience! We at the Blue Raccoons’ Studio believe this is the perfect way to bring music into our lives!
