Jazz Appreciation

Build your knowledge and shared appreciation of jazz, one of America's greatest art forms. Jazz Appreciation at OLLI blends lectures and documentaries on jazz history with discussions of the influence jazz had on popular music, guest speakers from the local jazz community, and of course our very popular live performances. The topic will be approached as a journey through the music world, highlighting the birth of jazz and how it continues to develop and evolve through time. Gain insight into the creative works and lives of the innovators of this music, and listen to examples of their work. Live performances arranged through connections with Las Vegas Jazz Society and local Las Vegas musicians always make this a vibrant, enjoyable course.
