Soul Message Band with Steamboat Springs Middle School and Emerald Mountain School Bands
Strings Music Festival Presents Mozart Masters Soul Message Band with Steamboat Springs Middle School and Emerald Mountain School Friday, March 10, 7pm FREE (tickets are required)
Chicago funk band Soul Message Band has been working closely with the Steamboat Springs Middle School Bands and Emerald Mountain School Orchestra this year. Over two workshops and multiple videos during the 2016-2017 school year, the students have practiced their improvisation skills, learned about the funk "groove", and the ways of a professional funk band. On March 10th, Soul Message Band will play alongside both bands in a culminating concert, where the students show off their new skills in special arrangements of Buddy Rich, Herbie Hancock, and James Brown songs.
