DiFiore was a master at crossing time zones. She could take her audience on a journey with today’s students performing yesterday’s songs. She could take you back 90 years and you were in vaudeville, 70 years and you were tapping your toe to music of a USO dance, or 50 years and your twisting to the “Rhythm of Life.” The actual age of her audience slipped away as the music made them one.
With a new year “2018” the Roene B. DiFiore Center for Arts and Education will be offering an open enrollment Jazz Class the third Tuesday of each month, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. It is our goal to bring generations together where beginner musicians can learn from older mentors by graciously accepting their wisdom as a vital part of the learning process.
Instruction will be under the direction of:
Carlyle Potter, Administrator
Dr. Glenn Webb, Chairman of the Music Department, Dixie State University
Dr. Christian Bohnenstengel, Director of Keyboard Studies, Southern Utah University
Dr. Thomas Herd, Director of Graduate Studies in Music Education, Southern Utah University
Robert Schmidt, District Arts Coordinator, Washington County School District
Dates: Every third Tuesday of the month
