Violinist Gregory Walker writes with an invitation to anyone in the Denver area to catch the debut of his WAV violin in a Jazz performance on Thursday, April 30th.
It’s not every day I get to explore jazz improvisation with the violin,
but next Thursday, May 30th, at 7:30 pm at Denver’s Kenneth King Center
for the Performing Arts, I’ll be performing with Irina Moreland in a
University of Colorado Denver faculty jazz event – and attempting to
swing with the best of them!
In the process, I’ll also be busting out a new electric instrument from
my friends over at NS Designs in Maine: the WAV violin!
