PBTS partners with JNMS in music merger

Players by the Sea is thrilled to be partnering with Jacksonville New Music Society (JNMS), a new nonprofit whose mission is to serve as a vehicle for new and creative music in Jacksonville.  JNMS & PBTS are launching their partnership with a concert featuring one of the most promising jazz musicians of his generation, Adam Larson.

Adam Larson is a saxophonist, composer and author who is an endorsed artist for P. Mauriat saxophones, Boston Sax Shop “Heritage” necks and Vandoren reeds, mouthpieces and ligatures.  Nate Chinen of The New York Times called him, “the sort of jazz musician who gets flagged early on as a promising talent and then hustles to meet every requirement for success.”  He has toured all over the world to gain recognition for his talent and continues to present master classes at various high schools and universities throughout the U.S. Larson has also worked in various capacities with organizations that showcase exceptional young American talent, including the prestigious Grammy Foundation.

The community won’t want to miss the opportunity to celebrate the joining together of both musical and theatrical worlds, as Players by the Sea is proud to invite new orchestral performances to the theatre.
