The Jazz Jam Series at LaGuardia Community College has been for many years an important calendar event for jazz lovers in Queens. In addition to the appreciation of jazz, it has been an important chance for established musicians to connect with aspiring jazz artists. Starting Feb. 6 at 8 p.m., the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center will kick off the latest season of the jazz series with headliners The Alper Yilmaz Project.
Before the show, amateur musicians are encouraged to sign up and perform, and the last third of the show is a jam session with Alper. It is a chance for aspiring musicians to share the stage with their professional heroes.
