A Hall High School graduate and alumnus of its acclaimed jazz quartet, Frahm has performed on the New York jazz club circuit for 30 years, regularly records with jazz colleagues and teaches at acclaimed jazz music programs, events and workshops around the world.

The Joel Frahm Quartet led by Frahm will include renowned jazz artists John Chin, piano; Martin Wind, bass and Matt Wilson, drums. In addition to delighting their senses with an afternoon of premier jazz, attendees of this ‘coming home’ event will enjoy a gourmet brunch by Artisan Restaurant Chef Frederic Kieffer.

Tickets for the Rotary Club of West Hartford’s November 3 Jazz Brunch at Artisan at the DELAMAR are $100 per person or $950 for a table of 10. Seating is limited, and tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. To purchase tickets online, visit http://bit.ly/WH_Jazzbrunch.

West Hartford Rotary’s Annual Sunday Jazz Brunch, sponsored by the Rotary Club of West Hartford, is now in its 17th season. This highly popular event has been successful in raising funds for many local charitable organizations. Past artists have included Jimmy Cobb, Don Friedman, Delfeayo Marsalis, Renee Rosnes, Javon Jackson, Jimmy Heath and Chris Flory. Each year, this day brings the best jazz artists New York and Boston have to offer to more than 200 jazz enthusiasts. All expenses, including payments to the musicians, equipment rental, promotional costs and the cost of the brunch itself, are financed solely by ticket sales.

Half of the event’s profits will be donated to the Gifts of Music program (www.giftsofmusic.us) to provide musical instruments and lessons for gifted and talented West Hartford public school students who cannot afford to pay for them. Over the past 16 years Rotary Club of West Hartford has been able to donate more than $35,000 to this program. Remaining proceeds will help to support local organizations and projects that support education, seniors and youth in West Hartford.
