ANNOUNCE THE 3RD ANNUAL
“SEEKING SATCH” STUDENT TRUMPET CONTEST
Contest Chairman: Delfeayo Marsalis
DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL AUGUST 1ST!!!
TO BE HELD DURING SATCHMO SUMMERFEST 2012 (Aug 3-5, 2012)
With support from French Quarter Festivals, Inc. and the Louisiana State Museum
This summer, musicians in 6-12th grade will have the opportunity to “come blow their horns” in a trumpet contest designed to showcase and support young local musicians. The third annual “Seeking Satch” contest, named in honor of native son Louis Armstrong and designed to keep New Orleans jazz traditions alive, will be held for the first time during the annual Satchmo SummerFest. It is open to all Orleans Parish students and is free to enter. Winners will receive cash prizes, a new trumpet, and local performance gigs.
The auditions will be held Saturday, August 4th, on the third floor of the Old U.S. Mint, from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. As the judges break to review contestant performances, the young trumpeters will jam together with the professional studio band that accompanied them during auditions. Just before noon, the winners will be announced, followed by a panel conversation with contest judges Chairman Delfeayo Marsalis, Herlin Riley, and Wendell Brunious.
“Mentoring has always been and important element in jazz. Louis Armstrong learned firsthand from older musicians such as King Oliver and Kid Ory, sharing the bandstand and creating collective masterpieces. In this same tradition, all Seeking Satch participants will have the opportunity to perform with a trio of professional musicians in a culminating performance. So tune up your chops!” encouraged contest chairman Mr. Marsalis.
The New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of the Old U.S. Mint Performance Hall on November 12, 2011 from 1:30 p. m. to 5:00 p. m.
