Congratulations to Patton Duvall, 2022 Billy Strayhorn Jazz Education Scholarship Award Recipient from the Nashville Jazz Workshop

Patton hails from Columbia, Tennessee where she will be a rising Junior this fall at Columbia Central High School. She is involved in her school’s marching, concert, pep and jazz bands. Patton also takes private lessons and occasionally plays in local big band rehearsals. Playing both the trumpet and flugelhorn, Patton attended the Nashville Jazz Workshop’s Summer Jazz Set 2022 for high school students, where she was awarded the Billy Strayhorn Jazz Education Scholarship. NJW Executive Director Lori Mechem told us “Patton was truly a joy to have at our camp and we look forward to hearing her grow as a wonderful musician!”. Congrats to Patton and Nashville Jazz Workshop for the great work they continue to do through their musical nurturing of these up and coming jazz students. The Foundation also received this very nice response from Patton: “Thank you so much!! I’m incredibly honored to have been given the scholarship. The camp was amazing, and I’m very grateful I was given the means to attend.”  That’s Patton Duvall (pictured on the right) playing the flugelhorn.
