Atlanta's 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra founded in 2008 by Gold Sparkle Band member Roger Ruzow merges two styles of music not thought of as compatible in the traditional sense. The original compositions and arrangements blend traditional Klezmer influenced songs and styles with west and south African rhythms to create an exotic amalgamation of afro-beats, Eastern European stomps and American jazz.
The nine piece jazz-orchestra features an all star lineup of some of Atlanta’s best musical talent, members and former members of such ensembles as: Cadillac Jones, Bazooka Ants, Noot d' Noot, Standard Deviation, Sahmada, Chilli Willie Blues Band, Perkenjie Shift, Gold Sparkle Band and Nu South Subteraneans just to name a few.
This ensemble provides new most excellent music!!

Daniel Clay will be opening the evening with songs from his latest release the "Protestant" and many more songs from the Daniel Canon.
"Clay's songs are filled with a dark, almost bleak, uncertainty against which his characters, and by extension all of us, struggle. That struggle is both spiritual and existential, though the difference between the two may be little more than a shade of a degree . . . he thoughtfully explores the many contradictions embedded in modern belief . . . the structure he uses to do this is both surprisingly traditional and thematically ingenious." - Nerd Litter

CREATING YOUR DIGITAL PORTFOLIO
Creating your Digital Portfolio is a class for artists that need to get their portfolios online. We will discuss successful website design, the specific needs of each participant, how to acquire a domain name, proper photographing and documentation of artwork, grouping of images to create the strongest portfolios and how to write a résumé and artist statement. We will also research and find different website creation routes and ultimately choose the tools that work best for each artist. The goal is for each student to have a functioning professional artist portfolio website by the end of the session.
