Mahidol University School of Music: A Quartet of Jazz Faculty Concert series in Washington DC

You are cordially invited to join us for a quartet of jazz faculty from Thailand’s renowned Mahidol University School of Music. The performances are taking place at three different locations in Washington, DC on April 26, 28 and 30, and are free of charge.

This program celebrates the sister-city collaboration between Bangkok and Washington, DC, established since 1962 and as part of Smithsonian’s “Year of Music”, featuring jazz faculty representatives from Mahidol University School of Music, Thailand’s most prestigious music conservatory, and one of the most respected music schools in Southeast Asia.  Making up the quartet are Darin “Joe” Pantoomkomol on keyboard, David Parente on drums, Krit “William” Buranavitayawut, on alto sax, and Noppadol “Long” Tirataradol on bass.

The members of this quartet – all faculty at the school — have toured internationally and appeared with the likes of Randy Breaker, Lewis Nash, Jakob Dinesen, and Terumasa Hino.
