For this concert, several students enrolled in the Berklee Global Jazz Institute will perform original compositions and improvisations based on works of art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and elsewhere. The concert is a final presentation of pieces that BGJI students have prepared during the dall 2012 semester in Creativity and Expression in the Arts, a class taught by liberal arts faculty member Anthony Scibilia, in conjunction with Danilo Perez, Marco Pignataro, and other Global Jazz Institute faculty members. The presentation will include musical performances by all of the students enrolled in the class (John Egizi, Zach Giberson, Jared Henderson, Hoo Kim Young, and Kabelo Witness Matlou, piano), and will be accompanied by projected images of the works of art on which the musical compositions are based.
