What a treat for you this Saturday at the WBGO Kids Jazz Concert at Newark Symphony Hall.  Not only will the one-hour event be hosted by WBGO's Gary Walker, but it will feature the work of jazz and blues pianist, composer, singer producer and educator Eli Yamin.

Yamin remembers when he was a teen he worked for WBGO and couldn't resist playing the piano in the station's performance studio.  That same piano is still there today.

Yamin will be joined by many terrific performers including singer and educator Antoinette Montague of Newark.
