Jazz Weekly: April 8
Posted by Mira Riselli

This week in jazz…

Hello hello!

Congrats on surviving until the end of classes! In case you were unaware, the weekly will continue until the end of recitals. This means that if you have a recital (or some completely unrelated event that happens before the weekly runs out) and want the details to appear in the weekly, please send me your info! Also, please send me more quotes, I’m running low.

For clarification purposes, Upper Jazz is located at 90 Wellesley St W.
