WTJU literally amplifies the music and arts of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia. Now we’re doing so in a new way: a weekly live music jam called Musical Commons, Tuesdays 8 – 10 p.m. at the Stage at WTJU (2244 Ivy Road).
Featuring: UVA Jazz Ensemble Director John D’earth, vocalist Tina Hashemi & invited guests.
WTJU’s Musical Commons will present a weekly performance event for student ensembles, faculty groups, and community musicians. The weekly series encourages collaborations and music making across genres, levels, and generations. From small jazz combos to singer songwriters to chamber music to rock acts.
As WTJU launches into its next era of community media, this proposal formalizes a collaboration with the UVA Music Department that goes back decades. The Musical Commons also fills a much-noticed need for smaller-scale performance spaces near UVA Grounds.
While a few of these weekly performances may air live on the radio, they will all be open to a live, studio audience.
Join us at The Stage at WTJU, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. for Musical Commons!
