32nd Annual North Carolina Jazz Festival opens Thursday, Feb. 2nd

The 32nd Annual North Carolina Jazz Festival opens Thursday, February 2nd with a special presentation called "Styles of Jazz."  And this year, Patrons of the Festival will have the chance to join a jam session with world-class musicians.  These are just a few of the offerings this year that 2012 Jazz Festival President Sandy Evans talks about with Rachel Lewis Hilburn in Tuesday's Midday Interview. 

During our Classical block on Tuesdays through Fridays at 12:06, Jemila Ericson and other staff members host a celebration of the arts and culture of the Lower Cape Fear. They interview artists, actors, dancers, writers and creators of community events--all the inspiring movers and shakers who enrich our lives.
