The Nash Legacy Ensemble

We are proud to congratulate Dalen Durnan, Cienega Instrumental Music Program musician, on auditioning and earning 1 of the 12 spots with the Nash Legacy Ensemble.

The Nash Legacy Ensemble is directed by two of the leading jazz musicians/educators in the Southwest – Mike Kocour (Director of Jazz Studies, Arizona State University) and Eric Rasmussen (Director of Instrumental Music, Scottsdale CC) – students will develop the art of small jazz ensemble improvisation, composition, and arranging in a highly-supportive and collaborative manner.
