The Florian Schantz Jazz Combo will return to the Montclair Library to celebrate the Oktoberfest. The program will feature European and American waltzes, polkas, marches and other German “Schlager” (hits). This program will include educational narrative as well as plenty of music.
The band is led by 17-year-old professional trumpet player Florian Schantz, who formed the band when he was 9 years old; since then, Florian has performed over 425 engagements across NJ, NY, CT and Germany. Also appearing in the band are: Rup Chattopadhyay (trombone and tuba), Margaret Schantz (Flügelhorn), Cory Ackerman (drums), and Lowell Schantz on guitar.
Registration is recommended; this program is free and open to the public.
