Take 5: Jazz at SAAM with Ally Hany Albrecht

May 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT


Celebrate a uniquely American art form with Take 5: Jazz at SAAM, a series of free, live performances in the Kogod Courtyard, with Washington DC-based trumpet player, arranger, composer and educator Ally Hany Albrecht. She is a member of the United States Navy Band, where she plays jazz trumpet with the Commodores jazz ensemble. Albrecht has also played jazz trumpet in the Grammy-nominated One O’Clock Land Band at the University of North Texas, and performed with the DIVA Jazz Orchestra, the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, the Jim Widner Big Band, Maria Schneider and Wycliff Gordon. She also plays with her own quintet, which released their first album, Journeys Ahead, in 2016. Attendees can also enjoy playing board games, and refreshments are available for purchase from the Courtyard Café.
