Event Notes

× A longstanding fixture on the New York jazz scene, drummer Sylvia Cuenca has played with and learned from the masters, and now is an established figure in her own right. For four years she was a member of Joe Henderson’s band, continuing on to an amazing 17-year stint with the band of trumpet legend Clark Terry. Cuenca has performed with a veritable who’s who of jazz, as well as Alicia Keys. She has been a guest clinician and artist-in-residence throughout the world, at the Sisters in Jazz Program, The Mary Lou Williams Jazz Festival, and has taught at the Jazz for Teens and Pre-Teens program at NJPAC, the Stanford Jazz Workshop and other jazz camps. We are delighted to have her this summer as Artist-In-Residence for our very own WP Summer Jazz Workshop!
