Little Theatre, NCPA
The workshop will explore the vast origins of jazz, from its influences and predecessors to the Swing era. Blues, gospel and ragtime all come together in early jazz, and the social and economic circumstances of the moment play an important role in its development. Born in Valencia, Spain, Alfie Copovi (Head of Keyboard Department, The True School of Music) had early contact with the instrument (age 5). Since then, he has had more than ten years’ playing in the venues of Valencia, Amsterdam and Belgium.
