ORMACO's Jazz Under the Stars

Bobby Selvaggio

Free Concert
Saturday, July 12
7 p.m.
Medina Square

Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach continues on July 12, 2014 with alto sax celebrity Bobby Selvaggio, along with Ashley Summers on bass, Chris Baker on drums and Theron Brown on piano. The concert will feature new original jazz music composed by Bobby, along with some jazz favorites. 
Bobby Selvaggio is one of the leading alto saxophone voices on today's jazz scene.  In the words of pianist Kenny Werner, “Bobby is among the best of players out there,” and legendary saxophonist Joe Lovano praises Bobby by calling him “one of the few young saxophonists on the scene today that captures you with his strong presence, focus, and sound.”
Bobby, who grew up in the Cleveland area, earned his Bachelor of Music in Music Performance from Kent State University.  He eventually moved to New York City and earned a Masters degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music. While in New York, Bobby studied with Joe Lovano, Bobby Watson, Dick Oatts, and Maria Schneider.  After living in New York for four years, Bobby decided to move back to Cleveland with his family. He has dedicated himself to keeping jazz alive in Cleveland and his passion for jazz education has led him to serve as Director of Jazz Studies at Kent State University.
In addition to his work in jazz education, Bobby continues to expand his discography. His most recent recording is Way of Being (Arabesque Records, 2013), which follows Grass Roots Movement (Arabesque Records, 2011) and Modern Times (Arabesque Records, 2009).  Modern Times featured Kenny Werner on piano and Sean Jones on trumpet. Bobby’s Unspoken Dialogue (Playscape Recordings, 2007), also featured Kenny Werner, as well as Jamey Haddad on drums, Ben Street on bass, and Paul Tynan on trumpet.  In addition to playing alto saxophone, Bobby also plays soprano saxophone, alto clarinet, flute, and is a composer, arranger, and jazz clinician.

These free concerts are at 7pm in Medina’s Uptown Park. Music lovers are encouraged to bring picnics and lawn chairs. In the event of rain, the concerts will take place at The United Church of Christ right off the square at 217 E. Liberty Street in Medina.
