A past member of the Thunderbird High School Jazz I Big Band and the Young Sounds of Arizona, trombonist Chris Clements is currently attending William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ, as a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies under the tutelage of John Mosca, Bill Charlap, and Dr. David Demsey. While in high school, Chris earned outstanding soloist awards at jazz festivals across the state as well as a full-ride scholarship to the Berklee Global Jazz Workshop at the Newport Jazz Festival where he studied under Danilo Perez, George Garzone, and Terri Lyne Carrington. Chris has performed at the Newport Jazz Festival, Vanderbilt Mansion, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, and various venues in the New York City/New Jersey area. In addition to performing at The Nash, Chris will be working as a Teacher’s Assistant to both Vincent Gardner and James Burton III at the Juilliard School this summer.

The Catch a Rising Star summer concert series features performances by young artists born in or based in Arizona. Curated by The Nash, the series provides a platform for these emerging artists to gain prominence in the jazz community. Catch a Rising Star is very much an educational program as well as a performance series. Those artists or groups selected to play in the series will be offered a free clinic by an experienced Arizona jazz educator in advance of their performance at The Nash.
