Pre-Performance Lecture: Dan Barrett on Jazz at Lincoln Center

April 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

| Free

On Sunday, April 2 at 6:00 p.m., join the Collins Center for the Arts for a pre-performance lecture delivered by UMaine jazz professor Dan Barrett, presented with the support of the Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center.

Dr. Dan Barrett teaches low brass instruments, music theory, and jazz courses at the University of Maine, and plays and performs around the state. He also leads the Maine Trombone Collective and the Maine Brass Guild. Barrett’s career has included performances with the Utah Symphony, the Bangor Symphony, the Boston Brass and many other ensembles, as well as solo performances with the Carson City Symphony, the University of Maine Symphonic Band, the University of Maine Farmington Concert Band, the Brigham Young University Philharmonic Orchestra, the Utah Premiere Brass Band, and as a guest artist at the Eastern Trombone Workshop in Washington D.C.

Songs We Love is a journey through the first 50 years of jazz song. Under the musical direction of Riley Mulherkar, 3 guest vocalists will join an all-star band made up of New York’s rising stars. Combining their distinct talents, the group will sing their way through four decades of music, beginning with the early blues and jazz of the 1920s and ending in the early 1950s. Iconic singers to be explored include Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland.

Dan Barrett’s pre-performance lecture is free and open to the public. Tickets for Jazz at Lincoln Center’s “Songs We Love” begin at $30 and are available from the Collins Center for the Arts box office.
