During the 2020-2021 season, we will experience a bubble extravaganza and go on a journey with Jazzy Ash, as she celebrates the music of New Orleans!
Jeff Boyer's Bubble Trouble
Friday, March 5, 2021 at 10 a.m.
Pottstown venue (details to be announced) & livestream
Bubble Trouble – A bubble volcano. Bubble roller coaster. A kid in a bubble? Jeff Boyer takes bubbles to the max in this one-man bubble extravaganza. It is the craziest, most creative bubble show around. Jeff juggles bubbles, sculpts and builds with bubbles, makes fog-filled bubbles and more. Mixing comedy, music and interactive bubble-magic, he engages and delights audiences of all ages.
Jazzy Ash presents You Can Play Ukulele
Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 11 a.m.
Eisenhower Middle School*, Norristown & livestream
An interactive virtual workshop for all ages, Jazzy Ash invites everyone to come along on a creative music adventure, learning how to play the ukulele! With her engaging personality, gorgeous voice and encouraging instruction, students can jump right in and play along. Hands-on musical experiences are a powerful tool for learning about musicianship, one's self and the world surrounding us. Through the YCPU curriculum, Jazzy Ash gently and playfully teaches music appreciation, technique, musicianship and songwriting. The approach is a combination of the play and inventive principles of the Orff Schulwerk Method and global focus of the World Music Pedagogy (Patricia Shehan Campbell).
"Jazzy Ash makes old songs joyous for new listeners while she acknowledges the creators of the work. Imagine a world where the music of your ancestors and the music of your descendants comes together and gets you dancing..." – Kathy O’Connell
