Catch a Rising Star series: This summer concert series features performances by young artists based in Arizona. Curated by The Nash, the series provides a platform for these emerging artists to gain prominence in the jazz community. Catch a Rising Star is very much an educational program as well as a performance series. Those artists or groups selected to play in the series will be offered a free clinic by an experienced Arizona jazz educator in advance of their performance at The Nash.
