Hello Whitehorse Middle School musicians!

This is a beginning, I’d like to introduce myself, I’m Laurie Lang bassist and composer and a musician coming to do a jazz residency with you and your orchestra. I’d like to invite all Whitehorse String kids to dialog with me as i work on jazz charts for the tunes we’ll play together and some with just a professional group.

You are welcome to ask questions here or give me ideas to make the arrangements better.

Our Tunes will be:

C Jam blues (in the key of D)

My Favorites Things – in E minor (modal)

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

and a free improv tune that we’ll play together.

Here is a photo of my family. We have a band, my 2 girls both started on violin but now 1 plays mandolin, ukulele, guitar, saxophone and trumpet and the other ukulele, piano and some drums. My husband plays sax and harmonicas and we all sing pretty well.
