Live at KUVO: Carmen Sandim Quartet| Apr 17

Apr 15, 2017

KUVO welcomes back pianist Carmen Sandim back to the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio on Monday, April 17 at 6pm. From piano lessons as a little girl in Brazil, to composing for her jazz quartet in Denver, Carmen Sandim has found in music her lifetime adventure and purpose. It comes as no surprise that Carmen Sandim has mastered the intricacies and subtleties of good jazz. Through her diverse journey, the unifying thread has been the search for a sound that is unique and honestly expressive.

The KUVO High School/Collegiate Series kicked off in 1997 and quickly became an important part of the station’s programming. The goal was always to support young musicians, but the results have been mind-blowing.  Two decades of monthly student broadcasts have been made possible by heroic music directors, dedicated parents, hard-working students, encouraging staff and volunteers, and a host of community underwriters that provide the equipment AND PIZZA to make it all happen!

 

We're excited to host the Annie Booth Trio with guest saxophonist Steve Treseler in the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio on Thursday, April 6 - 7pm
