CANNON ACADEMY of PERFORMING ART
'Birth of a Jazz Program'
[opened doors Thanksgiving November, 1993]
After presenting our first Christmas program in December 1993, this studio - lounge originally located at Robert Rd. & Spouse Dr. in Prescott Valley, AZ became known as the Cannon Academy of Performing Art. The academy teaching staff developed for private study consisted of Patti Bell/vocals; Clare Willey/piano, (deceased); Mel Zelnick/drum, (deceased); Joel DiBartolo/bass-theory (deceased); Milt Cannon, saxophone. There were also clinics, master classes and (3) day 'Artist in Residence' programs with drummer Butch Miles and with the Ortega Family Ensemble, the New Mexico Mescalero Apache performers that were also featured in our 1994 Prescott College Concert in the 'Sam Hill Warehouse.' All of the Cannon Academy activities were enhanced by weekly Sunday living-room 'matinee' performances introducing various established professional performers to the Prescott Valley, AZ area beginning with Phoenix vocalist, Sherry Roberson.
The Jazz Society/Cannon Academy respectfully encourages your very important recognition and support of all contributing local, regional or national sponsors
that help us bring you the very best performing artists in the country.
Sponsors also help to ensure the future of our projects & programs
for promoting and preserving live Jazz.
