Karen Pilant, Friends of Chamber Music supporter and member of the Board of the Brazos Valley Jazz Society:

“Jazz is a uniquely American art form with its own musical language. While not traditionally considered “chamber music,” jazz has similar characteristics. When Baroque musicians embellished melodies and improvised over bass lines, they used elements which we recognize as jazz techniques. Live performances of jazz and chamber music share a natural affinity for individual expression, interaction among musicians, and an intimate connection with listeners in real time. An appreciative audience response energizes all musicians, whether they are members of a jazz combo or a chamber music ensemble.”
