November 4 - 8thSan Jose, CA - Harker School. Amram will be the Artist-in-Residence for one week at the Harker School in San Jose CA and visit with students to share the relationship of studies of 20th Century Literature, Social Studies, American History, Creative Writing, Film, Theater, Biology, Anthropology, Comparative Religions and Music.
He will also encourage students who never felt comfortable participating in a musical group to see simple ways to relate to improvising as a way to learn to solve everyday problems and see how formal music is created by understanding what we are surrounded by and finding a structure to celebrate what we often take for granted or ignore.
Amram will also conduct the school orchestra in two of his compositions and join the jazz band as a soloist and band member.
