John Purcell, BMS Jazz/Rock Coordinator, hosts Jazz Jam at Brookline VFW on December 7

John Purcell

Brookline Music School faculty member & Jazz/Rock Ensemble Coordinator John Purcell will host his first Jazz @ the Post (JATP) jazz jam on December 7th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Brookline Veterans' Post (386 Washington Street, Brookline). Middle and high school musicians of all instruments are invited to come perform together, improvise, and exchange ideas!

Purcell (bass), along with BMS students on piano and drums, will comprise the traditional house rhythm section, which will accompany those who come by to play. However, musicians of those instruments are encouraged to attend and will be offered the opportunity to play. Younger musicians who may not be improvising yet are also welcome to attend.

Admission is free for all those who’d like to watch or perform.
