Spring Photos: Elite Syncopation: The Jazz Age Begins

On Sunday, February 3, 2019 Elite Syncopation returned to The Russell House to re-create historically authentic performances of landmarks from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The group featured Wesleyan Private Lessons Teachers Roy Wiseman on double bass, Perry Elliot on violin, and Julie Ribchinsky on cello; Liz Smith on flute, clarinet, and saxophone; and Gary Chapman on piano. Elite Syncopation performs historic American music, with a focus on ragtime and early jazz.
