Vermont Jazz Center Sextet performs July 14

BRATTLEBORO — The Vermont Jazz Center Sextet will appear at The Lounge, 4 High St., on Friday, July 14, from 7 to 10 p.m. There is no cover or admission charge, and food and drinks are available.

The Vermont Jazz Center Sextet is the VJC's community outreach ensemble. Through weekly rehearsals, the group has developed programs which are performed in schools, assistedliving homes, and libraries, bringing live jazz into less formal settings. Through these performances and clinics, people who might not attend concerts at the VJC are given the opportunity to hear and learn about the music of Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and others, with original music and arrangements often written by members of the ensemble.

The members of the VJC Sextet are: Rob Freeberg, trumpet; Bill Ballard, alto saxophone; Jim Heffron, tenor saxophone; Cathy Martin, piano; Jay Elfenbein, bass; and Mike Patek,
