JUNE 5TH, 2005, (SEATTLE, WA) – Dawn Clement and Marit Peters (piano/vocals jazz duo) will play at the L.A.B. (all ages performance space behind Seattle Drum School – 12510 15th Ave NE). The show starts at 7:30 pm. Admission is $15 for this benefit concert for Rainier Scholars. Rainier Scholars prepares kids of color from low resource schools for more rigorous academics.

Marit Peters, jazz vocalist who won the SAMMIE award for Best New Artist in 2000, joins forces with pianist Dawn Clement, hailed by Christopher DeLaurenti of The Stranger for “her prodigious talent”. Clement took the 2001 Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award in the “best emerging talent” category. Dawn and Marit will play a refreshingly underplayed set of jazz standards.

Dawn Clement is an active composer/pianist in the Seattle area. She is currently on the faculty at Cornish College of the Arts, and has toured and performed all over the country. She has performed with Julian Priester, Nancy King, Pharoah Sanders, Ingrid Jensen, and John Clayton among others. Marit Peters has been featured at Bumbershoot and has played with such notables as Jay Thomas, Steve Christofferson, Brad Houser, Arne Livingston, and Vince Frates.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
