The French Connection

a transatlantic love-hate musical romance
About this Program....

More than a concert, more than a workshop — a transatlantic love-hate musical romance...


Keri shares the rich heritage of Franco-American collaboration in Jazz with students of all ages.  Drawing from a long list of bi-continental jazz favorites she introduces concepts of French language & culture while getting participants actively involved with core jazz elements — improvisation, style and swing!
