Latin Grammy-nominee for 2014’s Best New Artist and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, Linda Briceño will headline a benefit performance for El Sistema Colorado on Sunday, March 26, 6 p.m. at Denver’s top jazz club, DazzleJazz. Briceño, 28, grew up in the El Sistema music education system in her native Venezuela and is thrilled at the opportunity to support the movement in Denver.
Linda Briceño’s connection with El Sistema is profound; she and her father created “Simón Bolívar Big Band Jazz” in 2007, under the direction of El Sistema founder, Dr. José Antonio Abreu. Briceño has captured international attention as a soloist, big band director and composer. She was the first Venezuelan woman to play with the renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Briceño will be joined by Colorado-born bassist Myles Sloniker, with cameos by his father, pianist Mark Sloniker, flutist Joe Anderies, and young El Sistema Colorado musicians.
Ticket are $20 and can be purchased online through DazzleJazz and Ticketfly.
