About this event

WBGO celebrates the TD James Moody Jazz Festival 2021 with a concert for young people.

Saxophonist and flutist Don Braden is known around the world as an exciting and interactive jazz soloist, a creative and prolific composer, and a passionate and energetic educator. For over 30 years he has toured the world leading his own ensembles, as a special guest, and as a sideman with Jazz greats Betty Carter, Wynton Marsalis, Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, Roy Haynes, and many others. He has composed music in various styles for ensembles ranging from duo to full symphonic orchestra, for recordings (including 22 CDs as a leader and over 80 as a sideman), film, and the television networks Nickelodeon and CBS.

He has spent over two decades giving master classes at schools and universities, and running educational programs such as the Litchfield Jazz Camp, NJPAC's Wells Fargo Jazz For Teens, and most recently, the Harvard University Monday Jazz Band.

Adults must be accompanied by a child. Doors open at 1:30pm.

This WBGO Kids Jazz Concert is in partnership with NJPAC and the TD James Moody Jazz Festival.
