Jazz at Meade is proud to welcome back Vaughn Ambrose for the final concert of 2018.  Vaughn Ambrose leads his own Jazz Quartet in the D.C. metro area and freelances up and down the east coast.  He has performed at the Montreaux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and the JVC Jazz Festival in New York City.  In March 2009, as a member of the group Alvin Atkinson and the Sound Merchants, Vaughn participated in an inspiring U.S. State Department tour, where they performed and lectured in Afghanistan, Armenia, Iraq and Lebanon.  The universality of music transcends all borders. 

A tremendously versatile artist who moves seamlessly from Big Band and post Bop to R & B and Funk, Vaughn has performed in concert with the following artists:  Bob Mintzer and the Yellowjackets, Vanessa Ruben, Stephanie Jordan, Nnenna Freelon, Terell Stafford, Jon Faddis, Carl Allen, Little Anthony and The Imperials, The Dells, The Spinners, The Temptations, Lou Rawls, Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight. 

Mr. Ambrose is the Director of Jazz at St. Stephen's & St. Agnes Upper School in Alexandria, VA.  Thanks to his unwavering dedication to the development of young artists, Mr. Ambrose developed the District X All District Honors Jazz Band weekend  This program has continued to thrive since its inception in 2005.  Vaughn has also been a featured conductor for the North Carolina Regional Honors jazz ensemble.  At home in Alexandria, he is a former Arts Education Commissioner on the City Commission for the Arts.  He is a native of North Carolina and earned a BM in Music Education and a MM in Jazz Studies at East Carolina University. 

Vaughn Ambrose is an educational visionary, a true jazz artist, and a natural and phenominal performer.  Please come out on Sunday, November 18th and help Jazz at Meade welcome back the acclaimed jazz saxophonist Vaughn Ambrose and his Quartet.
