About

The Knoxville Jazz Youth Orchestra, under the direction of Tom Lundberg, will perform a concert featuring jazz pianist Bill Carrothers. An acclaimed educator, performer and recording artist, Carrothers has performed and recorded with artists such as Dave Douglas, Gary Peacock, Bill Stewart and many others. He currently serves on the faculty of Lawrence University in Wisconsin.

This event is made possible with support from the Mark Hulsether McKee Memorial Jazz Endowment Fund. Mark McKee played in the KJYO as a high school student and later studied jazz with our guest, Bill Carrothers. Through this endowment, Mark’s family and friends hope to provide an annual enrichment experience for students discovering a passion for jazz in the KJYO.
