The Four Seasons Chamber Jazz Series celebrates the seasons of the year at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Augusta (UUCA).
The second in the series is on Friday October 17th, with jazz violinist Armen Boyajian. Opening for him and accompanying him will be pianist Josef Patchen.
Boyajian is based in Charlotte, North Carolina; he is a jazz violinist with more than 35 years of performing experience. He founded Air Apparent in Washington, DC in 1978, and has played bluegrass fiddle with the Thompson Brothers. Boyajian and Air Apparent are not strangers to the Augusta area, having played a significant role in developing the jazz scene and winning the designation "Best Jazz Band of Augusta" numerous times.
Joe Patchen is known in the Augusta- Aiken area as a performer and composer.
This is not the first time that UUCA has been the venue for Chamber Jazz, a term that implies a small, intimate environment, as in Latin jazz,
Dixieland, and Jazz standards. In the 1990s the Augusta Jazz Project held a regular Chamber Jazz series here, featuring artists such as the Rob Foster Quartet.
