Jazz St. Louis
Leaders in advancing the uniquely American art of Jazz
Field Trip to Jazz St. Louis
Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington composed sophisticated masterpieces. Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sarah Vaughn, transformed singing into vocal supremacy. Through rolled metal and sliced reed, John Coltrane orchestrated his sublime Love Supreme. Wes Montgomery, Hazel Scott, Ornette Coleman, Cannonball Adderly and the incredible Miles Davis forever determined the standard of Jazz Excellence. Yet, do you honestly know each pioneer's distinctive work by the end of the first whole note in a measure? T2S partner school students in grades 6 – 12 will attend the multi-media presentation of “Stolen Moments: The First 100 Years of Jazz”. This celebration of the unsurpassed Great American art form makes for a wonderful introduction to the genre, one that parents will be proud to build on!

Three Hundred and Twenty Five miles per hour...that makes reigning drag racing champion Antron Brown just about the fastest man on Earth! But guts isn't enough when victory is measured faster than a blink. Speed like that only comes with trust, teamwork and insane amounts of study. Antron will tell you that fast drivers are a dime a dozen. The Champion is the driver who's mind, body, team, car and Faith are best prepared to face off against all challengers. We first met Antron on video chat back in January. Now, with seatbelts strapped, we get to meet the Champ live!
