2009 WCSU Jazz Festival

Two of the world’s most influential and innovative jazz artists today — Panamanian pianist/composer Danilo Perez and Cuban drummer/composer Dafnis Prieto — were featured performers in the 15th Annual WCSU Jazz Fest from Thursday, April 30, through Saturday, May 2. The Dafnis Prieto Trio performed with the WCSU Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Assistant Professor of Music Jamie Begian. The Danilo Perez Trio performed the closing night of the festival. Since 1995, the WCSU Jazz Fest has brought leading jazz artists to Danbury each spring for a three-day program that combines concert performances with a series of music clinics offering master-class instruction and critiques for music students at WestConn and at schools in the Greater Danbury area. Prieto and Perez joined professional jazz artists who hold full-time and adjunct faculty positions in the WCSU music department to conduct performance clinics each day of the festival.
