Berklee BeanTown Jazz FestivalElan Trotman
Although during the day Berklee alumnus/music teacher Elan Trotman is found cultivating the minds of children to love music, at night he is a well-known member of the Boston, Providence, and New England music scenes.
Trotman has performed, recorded, and toured with an elite group of artists—among them are Grammy Award–winning r&b vocalists, Roberta Flack and Brian McKnight, Grammy-nominated saxophonist Kirk Whalum. He serves as the musical director, saxophonist/keyboardist, and longtime member of baseball pitcher Bronson Arroyo's band. He has also won awards for Best New Act (1998) at Barbados Nation Awards and Best Jazz Artist (2008) New England Urban Music Awards.
