The students from KIPP Ernest N. "Dutch" Morial School, led by Mr. Kelvin Harrison Sr and Mr. Alan Dejan, will be joining host Cole Williams on the April edition of School Groove, live from the WWOZ studio. This band placed second in the Advanced category at the recent 'Class Got Brass' competition, held by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation during Congo Square Rhythms Festival.
School Groove is a series of live in-studio performances by middle and high school students from the Greater New Orleans area.
Our show hosts sit down with the band leaders to talk about the band, what it's like to be young musician, and about the music education opportunities in New Orleans. We also make a $1000 donation to the schools that appear.
Tune in, sit back, and get excited over our city's musical future - because the future is bright!
