Jazz for Families

Saturday’s concert at the Arts Center at Duck Creek in Springs will feature the Hannah Marks Quartet leading a journey through jazz history for children and their families. The narrated 5 p.m. program will introduce the work of artists ranging from Ella Fitzgerald to Ornette Coleman.

Ms. Marks is a bassist, bandleader, composer, and educator from New York City. As a bandleader, she has performed at several major festivals, including the Detroit Jazz Festival, Hyde Park Jazz Festival, Iowa City Jazz Festival, and Indy Jazz Festival.

Her group is inspired by such legendary jazz quartets as the Branford Marsalis Quartet and Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet. Its previous appearances include 55 Bar and the Jazz Gallery in New York.
