University City Presents the U CityJazz Festival

September 20, 2012

The City of University City presents the second annual U City Jazz Festival in St. Louis’s Heman Park on this Saturday. Performances include acts like Jazz Education Initiative winners St. Louis Metrobone, Tracer (featuring Ptah Williams), Dawn Weber, the Silverman Brothers, Trio Tres Bien, and an All-Star tribute to Miles Davis. Officials say that this year’s festival offers an expanded educational component. A separate stage will be used for musicians of all ages to participate in an acoustic “jam.” Workshop facilitators will lead the group in learning how to improvise with their voices and percussion instruments.
