U.S. Jazz ambassadors return to Port Moresby

THE United States Embassy will showcase the performance of Jazz ambassadors, Freddie Bryant and Gilad Dobrecky, at UPNG on Wednesday, February 10 at 3:00PM.  

The performance is open to the public and will be held in the UPNG Forum Square.

Freddie and Gilad will be in Papua New Guinea next week conducting music workshops and performances with students in Port Moresby at Marianville Secondary School, Gordons Secondary School, Korobesea International School, and youths from the Eight Mile Settlement. They will also conduct a two-day music clinic at the University of Papua New Guinea.

Freddie Bryant is a versatile musician skilled both in jazz and classical music.  He holds a BA from Amherst College and a Master's degree in classical guitar from the Yale School of Music, and he currently teaches at Williams College in Massachusetts at the Prins Claus Conservatory in Groningen, Holland.

Gilad - a percussionist, composer, and clinician - has been recognized by Jazziz magazine as one of the world's top percussionists.  Considered a child prodigy, he started performing professionally at the age of 7.  He started playing classical music and moved on to explore other styles.  He has performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and has founded many ethnic musical ensembles.  He has also performed in theater and TV productions.

Freddie Bryant and Gilad Dobrecky were in Port Moresby last June and conducted music workshops and performances for students at Gerehu Secondary School, Kilkila Secondary School, POM Grammar School, UPNG, the Children's University of Music and Art and the Community Partnership Art Education Program in 8 Mile.
