Last year the first annual Sonic Showdown was a huge success! There were 60 kids, in 14 different acts of all kinds: jazz combos, rock bands, duos, a DJ, a rapper, electronic and more. We are so excited to host the 2nd Annual Sonic Showdown at The Temporary
in Willits on April 13th, 2019. Free and open to the public we invite the entire community to come out and enjoy some fantastic music from some super talented students!
Sonic Showdown is a showcase for young musical talent from Aspen to Rifle presented by Jazz Aspen Snowmass and the Jake Foerster Music Arts Fund. This is a unique opportunity for students show off what they can do! All forms and genres of music are welcome this year: DJs, bands, soloists, vocalists, rappers, collaborations, etc. A group of professional musicians will be on hand to offer each group a critique after they perform. JAS will also be watching and rewarding possible future performances at the June or Labor Day Experiences, complimentary recording time at a local studio and other perks.
Again this year we will have a silent auction to raise money for the JAS/JFMAF Scholarship Fund. And new this year we will be hosting a Silent Auction at The Temporary following the Sonic Showdown. All proceeds from the Silent Disco will also go to the JAS/JFMAF. More details on the Silent Disco to come!
