This program is an adaption of a program presented at the museum in September as part of the Al Sears Jazz Festival. This program aims to build greater appreciation for jazz as well as explore how a greater understanding of how music can help build listening and communication skills.

The musicians who have developed and will perform the program include Dr. John Cooper, trumpet; Matt Hughes, bass; Kevin A. Nichols, percussion; Kitty Karn, voice; and Michael Stryker, piano. All are accomplished musicians and faculty members of Western Illinois University.

This program is made possible through a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council. It has received additional support from the Edison PTO, Two Rivers Arts Council, and the Macomb Educational Foundation.

The program is scheduled to be presented at Macomb High School in December and the area
