Members joined us for a very special IVY Jazz Lab and met the electrifying performer Gregory Groover at OBERON! A talented saxophonist and alumni of the world-famous Berklee College of Music, Gregory, at the age of 23, has already been selected to perform at renowned festivals such as The Heineken Jazz Festival, The BeanTown Jazz Fest, and The Panama Jazz Festival. In this unique musical program produced exclusively for IVY members, Gregory performed thrilling versions of the Negro Spirituals, a 19th century oral tradition that imparted Christian values while also describing the hardships of slavery through song. These historically rich hymns have inspired Gregory’s creative process and original arrangements, and he conveyed the powerful stories of our nation’s past through vibrant jazz adaptations of the Spirituals. Before the show, we enjoyed a complimentary welcome drink and lively conversation with a great group of IVY members. Following the performance, we went behind-the-scenes for a rare Q&A with Gregory and members of the band!
