WBGO Kids Jazz Concert Series

Eli Yamin
Doug Doyle for WBGO

What a treat for you this Saturday at the WBGO Kids Jazz Concert at Newark Symphony Hall.  Not only will the one-hour event be hosted by WBGO's Gary Walker, but it will feature the work of jazz and blues pianist, composer, singer producer and educator Eli Yamin.

Yamin remembers when he was a teen he worked for WBGO and couldn't resist playing the piano in the station's performance studio.  That same piano is still there today.

Yamin will be joined by many terrific performers including singer and educator Antoinette Montague of Newark.

  Drummer Jerome Jennings was the featured artist at Saturday’s WBGO Kids Concert Series.

“What I love about performing for kids is their honesty in terms of how they feel.  They don’t withhold their feelings of whether they disagree, bored or tired,” said Jennings.

Jennings, originally from Cleveland, Ohio graduated in 2004 from Rutgers University's Mason Gross School for the Performing Arts. Later on, Jennings became the first jazz studies recipient of the Morse Fellowship at the Juilliard School. Jennings' first album, ‘The Beast’, was released last November.
