Grammy Award-Winning Trumpet Player Brian Lynch is to visit MTHS on March 16 to perform with the MTHS Jazz Ensemble 1.

Brian Lynch is as comfortable negotiating the complexities of clave with Afro-Caribbean pioneer Eddie Palmieri as he is swinging through advanced harmony with bebop maestro Phil Woods.

A honored graduate of two of the jazz world’s most distinguished academies, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and the Horace Silver Quintet, he has been a valued collaborator with jazz artists such as Benny Golson, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Charles McPherson; Latin music icons as diverse as Hector LaVoe and Lila Downs; and pop luminaries such as Prince.

At the “Red Door” (MTHS Band Room) this Saturday, March 16th – doors open at 6:30p, concert is at 7p.

This show may sell out, so buy your tickets in advance! Tickets are $15 – For tickets contact Sherrill Leppich at 425-478-1989 or email to
