Five-time Grammy-winning bassist, Victor Wooten, returns to Milton’s campus on Monday, December 5, from 7:30–9 p.m. to perform a fundraising concert in King Theatre to benefit the jazz program’s 2017 South Africa Tour.
Mr. Wooten first performed at the School in 2014 with his group, Bass Extremes. Music faculty member Bob Sinicrope is excited to welcome him back for this rare solo concert. “Victor Wooten has a new MIDI bass that allows him to produce sounds of different instruments,” says Bob. “This should add a special dimension to this performance.”
Money raised from the event will help support Milton’s eleventh trip to South Africa—creating scholarships for advanced jazz students wanting to join this year’s tour and adding to the $170,000 worth of instruments and materials already donated to school programs in South Africa in previous years.
