Arts & Entertainment ‘Jazzin’ It Up’ in Franklin

“Jazz It Up,” a concert by saxophonist Lloyd Weinberg and vibraphonist Paul Babelay, was presented Thursday, March 17, at 8 p.m., in the main hall of the Macon County Public Library.

The program spanned jazz styles from Dixieland, Latin and Swing, to contemporary works, including classics like “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Take the A Train,” with an audience participation tribute to Saint Patrick’s Day.

Babelay and Weinberg are talented and versatile musicians who both have extensive experience as solo, ensemble, and studio artists.

Both hold master’s degrees in music – Babelay from North Texas State, and Weinberg from the University of Maryland.

The duo also presented programs and master classes to intermediate, middle and high school music students Thursday and Friday through the Arts Council’s Artists-in-the-Schools Program, such as the FHS Band class in the first picture.
