Jazz Festival: Melissa Aldana

When: Fri., June 26, 7 & 9:15 p.m. 2015

Melissa Aldana began playing saxophone at the tender age of 6. After watching pupils come in and out of her home in Santiago, Chile to take lessons from her father, Marcos Aldana - a renowned jazz saxophonist himself - the young Melissa would pester him to teach her as well. Her father began teaching her by showing her how to play two notes. From that moment, she was hooked and was finally given her first saxophone, an alto, and her father began teaching her how to play.
