Siskiyou Music Project and Britt Education once again collaborate to bring world class music to southern Oregon for a three day residency which will include visits to a number of Rogue Valley schools.
The Anderson Brothers from New York City. “Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times) identical twins and Juilliard graduates Peter and Will Anderson will return to the Rogue Valley for school visits and intimate concert and will be guest artists at the Ashland High School Jazz Festival.
They will perform American songbook gems, New Orleans jazz hits, and Brazilian Bossa Novas drawing from the songbooks of George Gershwin, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Known for their unique renditions of classic jazz songs and innovative original music, they hail from Washington, DC, but moved to New York City to attend Juilliard School of Music.
Peter and Will have performed with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Village Vanguard Orchestra, Jimmy Heath Big Band, Wycliffe Gordon, Paquito D’Rivera, Kenny Barron, Bob Wilber, Wynton Marsalis, live on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion, and are featured on the 2014 Grammy Winning Soundrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire with Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks.
The Anderson’s have headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sarasota Florida Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Feinstein’s 54 Below, Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center, DC’s Blues Alley, and Arizona Music Festival. Their ensemble has performed in over 40 U.S. States, toured Japan, and featured four times in NYC’s famed “Highlights in Jazz” series, alongside Lou Donaldson, Ken Peplowski, Steve Turre and Jimmy Cobb. As guest clinicians, Peter and Will have visited over 100 High Schools countrywide in addition to Temple University, Xavier University, University of South Florida, University of Central Oklahoma, Florida State University, Ohio State University, Michigan State University, and University of Scranton.
