A historian by nature, Loren Schoenberg became a fixture in the jazz world with his unmatched knowledge about the genre and passion for preserving its past while making it eminently contemporary. Today, in addition to his work performing, conducting, writing, and teaching, Schoenberg has been named Executive Director of The Jazz Museum in Harlem.
Loren joins 23Arts in Tannersville to give a preview discussion on the history of Harlem jazz, all in advance of the world premiere of The Spirit of Harlem.
In addition to his duties as Executive Director of the Jazz Museum, Schoenberg is on the faculty of Julliard’s Institute for Jazz Studies, and Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz 101 series. He has taught at the New School, the Manhattan School of Music, William Paterson University, SUNY/Purchase, the Essentially Ellington Band Director’s Academy in Snowmass, Colorado, The Julliard Evening School, and Long Island University. In addition, he has given lectures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the New York Philharmonic. Schoenberg is the Program Director of the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Jazz Colony summer program.
