Satellite Primos 2019-20

The Los Primos Project has been offering small ensembles classes for 20 years. Motivated students, rehearsing in small ensembles directed  by Jeff Goodspeed, and other professional musicians, learn to play music in all styles and learn to improvise with ease. When the first few groups from our project went to Cuba, they became known as the Canadian Primos. They went on to gain notoriety from their standing-ovation performances at the Atlantic Jazz Festival and their energetic dance sets at the Dance for All Ages.
