New in the hood: Ev Stern's Jazz Workshop

August 5th, 2013 · No Comments

The Maple Leaf Summer Ice Cream Social is a good way for us to get to know neighbors old and new, including newcomer Ev Stern’s Jazz Workshop.

For two decades, Ev Stern has been teaching jazz around Seattle and he told us at the social that he’s excited to now be in his biggest location yet, which just happens to be in Maple Leaf at 1060 N.E. 100th St. We plan to check out the space soon, but in the meantime wanted to make sure the community knew about his upcoming Summer Camp from Aug. 12-17, including Stern teaching bass, Eric Verlinde on piano and Jeff Busch on drums.

In addition, Stern’s 20th annual Summer Jazz Workshop is also continuing through Aug. 31. All ages, levels and instruments are invited, and instructors include Karen Moitoza, Darrius Willrich and Jeff Busch. Activities include ensembles, concerts, classes, jazz camp, lessons and jazz sessions.

For more information, email Stern at, call him at 206-661-7807 or go to his website
