About The Performance
Columbia’s Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance Program ensembles will perform live at The Forum with special guest Anat Cohen.
The Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance Program is an on-campus program that brings together the many talented and creative jazz players at Columbia University, providing lessons and ensemble practice that incorporate a wide array of stylistic and rhythmic designs. Columbia’s strength is its interdisciplinary approach to jazz studies, and the LAJPP is a central part of a larger mission which sees jazz as a music without borders and a mode for integrating scholarly inquiry with innovative teaching and community dialogue.
Anat Cohen has been declared Clarinetist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association every year since 2007 and has also been named the top clarinetist in both the readers and critics polls in DownBeat for multiple years running.
