The Ward Melville Heritage Organization (WMHO) is continuing the “Let’s Talk Life” Master Class series on November 18th at 1pm over Zoom with “More than Music: The Human Spirit of Jazz and the Art of Living Joyfully with Tom Manuel, DMA”. There is no cost to attend this program, but registration is required. 

Dr. Manuel will lead the meeting in an exploration of Jazz and its role not only in the American songbook, but in healing and invigorating the human spirit. A discussion of the art of living joyfully will follow, including the importance of embracing spontaneity in everyday life.

Dr. Manuel is the founder and President of the Jazz Loft in Stony Brook Village, as well as a Jazz historian, music educator and trumpet player and the recipient of an endowed Artist in Residence chair within the Jazz department at Stony Brook University. He also holds a faculty position with the Stony Brook University Young Artist Program directing their jazz program in residence at the Jazz Loft.
