Igmar Thomas is a New York City-based jazz trumpeter on the rise. He’s also a major hip-hop-head, and with his band the Cypher he mixes the two genres together into a fresh brew. His partner in crime is DJ Raydar Ellis, a rapper and turntablist who also teaches hip-hop at Berklee College of Music. Thomas, Ellis and the Cypher will perform this evening at CapitalBop’s Traveling Loft–taking place at THEARC–but here they appear in a free master class for youth. Middle and high school students are especially encouraged to attend. Admission is free, but registration is suggested. Click here to register. All master class attendees get a free ticket to attend the concert at THEARC that night.
This engagement of Igmar Thomas & the Cypher is made possible through the DC Special Presenters Initiative program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
