The Clarion at Brazosport College is pleased to introduce its newest series, Jazz in June, which will feature intimate jazz concerts throughout the month of June.

Jazz in June is a new Jazz Listening Room style series of jazz concerts held in the Clarion lobby and will feature musicians from the Brazosport and Houston areas.

The Jazz Listening Rooms Series will run every Tuesday in June, with shows starting at 6 p.m. The Clarion lobby will be transformed into an intimate jazz club setting. Hors o'deuvres and beverages will be serviced.

Each Jazz Listening Room session will focus on a different style or topic in jazz. The first session on June 6, "Jazz Saxophone Icons," will feature Warren Sneed, director of jazz studies at Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) and a highly regarded saxophonist.

Warren will explore the music of jazz saxophone legends Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and others.

Admission to the Jazz Listening Room series is free and no tickets are required.
