(Centennial, CO) – Labeled ”virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” by the New York Times, Peter & Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary set of brothers performing jazz music today. This is your chance to see them in a free concert on Tuesday, April 4th at 7 pm at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. The concert is the last in the 2016-2017 season of Good Shepherd’s Music with a Mission Concert series. They will perform some of your favorite pieces as a trio with a jazz guitarist.
Peter & Will are known for their exciting arrangements of jazz classics and fresh original music. They hail from Washington, DC, and then moved to NYC to attend Julliard. They have performed with the Jimmy Heath Big Band, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Village Vanguard Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Paquito D’Rivera, Kenny Barron, Bob Wilber, and Albert “Tootie” Heath. They were recognized internationally as teenagers by Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead, the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, and NFAA Young Arts.
Peter and Will’s debut release from 2012, Correspondence, features Kenny Barron and was listed in Vanity Fair magazine alongside Miles Davis in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.” The Washington Post called their music, “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz tunes.” Their newest album, Deja Vu, features Albert “Tootie” Heath and was called “a burner that reveals the band’s cohesiveness and spirit” by JazzTimes.
The Music with a Mission Concert Series offers free concerts for the Centennial community while raising funds and awareness for local mission organizations. A “love offering” will be collected with all donations going to St. Clare’s Ministries and St. Francis Center who both serve the needy in our community.
