Healdsburg Jazz Village

New for 2019!


for Healdsburg & Geyserville Schools

June 3-7

Healdsburg Jazz will expand Jazz Village in 2019 by adding an exciting new dimension—Jazz Village Campus! Healdsburg and Geyserville schools will be invited to participate during school hours June 3-7. Our goal for Jazz Village Campus is to engage students to participate in high-quality music learning experiences and to increase music education opportunities at the elementary school level.

Jazz Village Campus programs are offered free of charge to all schools in Healdsburg and Geyserville, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Some classes will be bilingual, although music is a universal language that involves and inspires

students at many levels. Each day there will be five to six music education programs that schools can choose from.

Workshops are designed by highly experienced musicians-educators who are skilled at teaching in public schools as well as world-class artists. The music programs address the California Content Standards in music, history, social studies and literacy.


Jazz Village Campus workshops include:

RHYTHM SECTION | Orchestrated by musician-educator Ami Molinelli

The Rhythm Section is a designated area with four programs running simultaneously. Examples include:

  • PUTTING IT TOGETHER: Students will explore the power of sound and how it manipulates They will learn to accompany a song from Africa while playing percussion rhythms.

  • THE ROCK GAME: This class demonstrates how to work together as an ensemble or The Game is adapted from one that originated in Ghana, West Africa. The goal is to show that if one person is “out of sync” with the group, then the whole group falls apart—a metaphor for community and musical collaboration. Students will learn how everyone’s voice is important.
  • INTERACTIVE ART WALL: Local artists will help students create art to recorded or live music to make a Jazz Village Campus The goal is to create art based on the concept of improvisation: “paint what you hear.”

BLUES STAGE | With bluesman Guy Davis

With “Routes of the Blues,” Guy explores two prominent styles of the Blues—Mississippi Delta and the Piedmont/East Coast forms—through storytelling and playing 6-string and

12-string guitars and harmonica. Incorporating geography, history and student interaction, Guy takes students on a journey that slices through a fascinating part of the American musical landscape. Students will participate in the rhythmic and kinesthetic experience of a work song by singing and moving.

From the Fire


A Community Reflects and Rebuilds

From the Fire: A Community Reflects and Rebuilds commemorates the anniversary of the firestorm that devastated large areas of Sonoma County and the North Bay in October 2017. The exhibition will examine the fires from personal, historical, and environmental perspectives, as well as highlight art’s power as a healing tool and creative outlet. From the Fire will open on October 6, 2018 and run through January 27, 2019.

From the Fire will bring together The Fire Wall and The Fire Collection, projects developed immediately after the fires under the banner of The Fire Project. Included in the exhibition will be a digital display of The Fire Wall, showcasing hundreds of artworks and stories submitted by members of our community. Salvaged artifacts contributed by the community to The Fire Collection will also be exhibited.

In addition, artists including Teresa Camozzi, Brian Fies, Kimberlee Koym-Murteira, Gregory Roberts, Adam Shaw, and Penny Wolin will present original works created in response to the fires. A timeline tracing the advancement of the wildfires, showing the efforts of the first responders, the coverage of the press and media, the valiant efforts of individual heroes, and our efforts to rebuild over the last year, will all be topics covered by this wide-ranging exhibition.

The exhibition is meant to bond our individual attempts to process and honor what we lost, while cherishing what was gained – new perspectives, stronger bonds, and a profound appreciation for the human spirit. It is our hope that the combination of community-based artworks, installations by professional artists, and salvaged objects will create a meaningful experience that will prove to be healing and renewing to the community, and will inspire us to continue to grow together.
