Birdland Big Band Presents Masterclass and Open Rehearsal

Tommy Igoe

Live at Birdland with Tommy Igoe


Tuesday, October 9, 2012


  • Drumset Workshop - 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m., Room 121 (DiCicco Reh. Room), Cogswell Hall, IUP Campus
  • Open Rehearsal with Tommy Igoe and IUP Jazz Ensemble - 4:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., Room 121, Cogswell Hall, IUP Campus

This will be a tremendous opportunity for music educators and their students to learn from one of the best jazz musicians New York has to offer—the legendary drummer Tommy Igoe of the Birdland Big Band. Mr. Igoe will present a drumset workshop to IUP percussion students and regional high school percussion students, followed by a 30-minute open rehearsal where he can be heard live with the top IUP Jazz Ensemble. 

This outreach activity is in advance of the Ovations! concert being presented on October 9, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. in Fisher Auditorium, and is brought to you through ArtsPath, the arts-in-education program of the Lively Arts.

Please contact the Lively Arts associate director for arts-in-education, Jeff Wacker, at or at 724-357-2787 (ARTS) if you and/or your students would like to participate.
