The Berklee Global Jazz Institute is an honors performance program run by Danilo Perez. Isaac Haselkorn, a graduating drummer for the group writes about his experience at International Jazz Day in Paris.
When rumors first came out that our ensemble would be going to Paris to play at International Jazz Day, we couldn’t believe it. We had just finished a series of concerts and a clinic in Monterey California as Berklee’s representatives to the Next Generation Jazz Festival.

Andrea Belanger, bandleader of The Blind Woods, discusses the groups recent trip to Bonnaroo 2012.
We cruised through general admission camping handing out hundreds of our beautiful Blind Wood’s stickers, getting the Bonnaroo buzz going right away! Before our tents were even up Ricky and Ryan were on top of the RV jamming and drawing a crowd.
Ethan Schiff, producer of the Berklee Summer in the City 2012 WUMB, Georges Island and Harvard Longwood concert series’, Founder of Indie Basic, Artist Manager at Ethan Schiff Entertainment and current Berklee Music Business Major, gives his insight to the wonderful opportunities Summer in the City gives emerging artists.
When you’re a relatively new upcoming artist, there’s often a good amount of compromise that needs to take place. At this stage in a musical career, exposure is ultimately the most important thing to be gained from a performance. Sometimes even if you don’t get paid or loose money to traveling expenses, the chance to raise awareness about your music is worth it. But every once in a while you come across an opportunity that is beneficial both financially and promotionally. The Berklee Summer in the City Series is just that.
