Inside the Music presents a workshop with guitarist Vic Juris, open to all, musicians and listeners alike.

"Vic's highly developed sense of composition, his skill at fusing traditional jazz guitar with other forms of expression, has made him an eloquent and popular conversationalist."

Vic has been a member of the David Liebman group since 1991. He was a member of the Gary Peacock Quartet and musical director of the Charles Mingus Guitar Quintet. He has teamed up with guitarist Larry Coryell, John Abercrombie and Russell Malone. In the mid eighties Vic teamed up with the phenomenally talented guitarist Bireli LaGrene. Their popular performances were charged with the intensity of two masters challenging each other to new heights. Vic has performed with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Phil Woods, Jimmy Smith, Sarah Vaughan, Chico Hamilton, Richie Cole, Mel Torme, Eddie Jefferson, Nancy Wilson, Jeremy Steig, James Moody, Charlie Mariano to name a few. Vic is one of the leading jazz educators throughout the world. He currently teaches at The New School for Social Research, Rutgers University, and Lehigh University and has conducted clinics throughout the US and Europe.

Inside the Music Lecture, Concert and Workshop Series is a presentation that strives to bring the audience an opportunity to get to know the guest artist and his or her music background.

During the presentation, jazz musician, teacher and organizer Tim Bedner asks key questions of the guest artist who will then elaborate on who they studied with, their influences, their inspiration. The audience is encouraged to further this discussion during the Q & A session.

In combination with the lecture our guest artist will either provide a workshop, a demonstration or a concert. Tim Bedner will often participate providing accompaniment or forming the second half of a duo. Inside the Music is held in the quiet intimate space of Alcorn Music Studios. Registration is limited to in order to maintain the sense of being a part of the experience.

Vic Juris is performing at Café Paradiso on Friday and Saturday, October 15-16, with guitarist Roddy Ellias.
