Come and discover with your students the jazz world of Ben Wendel, composer, saxophonist and bassoonist from the USA. Having worked with artists such as Snoop Dogg and Prince, Ben Wendel is a contemporary populariser, influential on the social networks. At BOZAR he will be presenting a concert around his latest "High Heart" project that is addressed to music-lovers everywhere. Drawing on the opposition between "High Art" and "Low Art", "High Heart" is a message of hope that seeks to share experimental music with the widest possible audience.
At this interactive concert, your students will be able to:
- Discover the personal work of an artist and his vision of music
- Gain a better understanding of experimental jazz
"This project reflects my continued effort to create art that is personal and relevant in an increasingly impersonal time” - Ben Wendel
