  • CIM@CMA: Music in the Galleries

    October 5, 2016, 6:00 pm
    Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Blvd., Cleveland

    The popular series of monthly concerts in the galleries featuring young artists from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the joint program with Case Western Reserve University’s early and baroque music programs enters its fifth season. Outstanding conservatory musicians present mixed programs of chamber music amid the museum’s collections for a unique and intimate experience—concerts regularly feature instruments from the museum’s keyboard collection.

    From standard repertoire to unknown gems, these early-evening, hour-long performances are a delightful after-work encounter or the start of a night out. Programs announced the week of the performance.

    Free, no tickets required. More information is available at: clevelandart.org

IMPROVISATION

Originally from the West Coast of Canada, double bassist, composer and educator Ashley Summers has a master’s degree in Jazz performance from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, where she worked with Jazz education luminary Dr. David Baker. Equally passionate about composition, education and performance, her talents have brought her to stages all over the world. In 2003, she represented Canada when she was selected to be a member of the Sisters In Jazz All-Star Quintet, an International Collegiate Competition sponsored by IAJE and BET on Jazz. More recently, she has been touring venues throughout the U.S., from concert halls like the Kennedy Center for the Arts to Cleveland's Nighttown and the Lilypad in Boston, supporting such like-minded artists as Bobby Selvaggio, Paul Tynan and Aaron Lington and their original projects, as well as her own. Recent performances have included special guests Corey Christiansen, Leo Blanco, Rez Abbasi and Kenny Werner.

Aside from keeping a busy performance schedule, Ms. Summers is also an in-demand educator. For several years she served as director of IAJE Canada's 'Jazzmobile' project, which placed professional Jazz musicians in Canadian schools to motivate, educate and inspire young musicians. She also frequently serves as an adjudicator, guest artist and clinician at festivals and universities throughout Canada and the U.S., including the annual Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow, Idaho.
