As we welcome students back for a new semester, we invite you to join us at our Faculty Concert, where we shine the spotlight on a talented musician, and give students a chance to hear their teachers in their natural element- ononthe bandstand. 

These concerts are free and open to all. Come enjoy a great evening of music with us! 

Hailed as an “alto sax virtuoso” and “master musician” by Downbeat Magazine, Jim Snidero has been a highly-respected bandleader and recording artist for over a quarter century. 

After moving to New York City in 1981  Snidero quickly gained recognition as a member of legendary organist Brother Jack Mcduff’s group, traveling throughout the US and making 3 recordings with an established jazz master. Since then he has recorded and/or performed with some of the most important names in the jazz, including The Mingus Big Band, Frank Wess, Eddie Palmieri, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Maria Schneider, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sting, drum masters Steve Smith  and Billy Higgins, as well as talented jazz artists including Walt Weiskopf, Conrad Herwig, David Hazeltine, Mike Ledonne, Joe Magnarelli, Jim Rotondi, Michael Weiss, among others.
