Come join the Akron Arts community at C3, the Creative Arts Collaborative Center, located inside the HÜG Event Center in Highland Square, for the first ever masterclass and concert performance. We will welcome internationally renowned Jazz Vocalist, Michelle Lordi, featuring Jazz Piano Master, Orrin Evans. This one night only event will start with a one-hour masterclass at 4PM, and followed by a 90-minute concert performance starting at 7PM. This masterclass will involve students learning the process of creating, performing, and touring as a musician, and will be followed by questions at the end. Our educational outreach through masterclasses are meant to help prepare students for a career in the Arts, helping students of all ages understand the Creative Process that can lead to a most rewarding career. Join us in this uplifting series starting Thursday, March 23rd, 2023. Parking will be held in the lot across the street.
