The Perfomers

Gordon Vernick

Our host for the program is Gordon Vernick, professor of music and the coordinator of jazz studies at Georgia State University. The self-described “teacher, mentor and tormentor” is an advocate for music of all genres. His online music series, Jazz Insights, was created to help novices learn about jazz through simple explanations and musical examples. (Photo by Mark Ludbrook)

Audrey Shakir

Audrey Shakir - Since moving to Atlanta in the late ’90s, Audrey has performed at several Atlanta Jazz Festivals and at every jazz club in Atlanta. She teaches a weekly jazz clinic at Georgia State University and is highly regarded in the jazz community as a “musician’s musician.”

Louis Heriveaux

Louis Heriveaux has made waves in the Jazz world and continues to make them every week on the Atlanta Jazz scene. His long standing gigs in Atlanta allow him the opportunity to build a following and show that he can command the piano in a mellow tone, just as magnificently as he can swing things in a grand venues such as Carnegie Hall. 

Louis holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a concentration in Jazz studies, from Georgia State University. He remains true to the authentic art form, while infusing his own personal style.
