2016 Make Jazz Fellow and former Fulbright Fellow Teddy Raven is a saxophonist, composer, and educator based in the Bay Area, California. He regularly performs with a wide variety of groups in diverse genres such as jazz, funk, Balkan, electronic and more, and has become an in-demand performer, composer, and educator due to his versatility, professionalism, and passion for music. A believer in the social power of music to unite, Teddy has traveled around the United States, Eastern and Western Europe, and Turkey as a performer, educator, and student to share the joy that music can bring.
Sponsored by the Herb Alpert Foundation to honor and support jazz artists, 18th Street Arts Center annually hosts its Make Jazz Fellowship, awarded to a jazz composer for a three-month, fully funded residency. This opportunity is for an individual jazz artist to advance or complete a body of original compositions. For three months the Make Jazz Fellow lives and works among artists in sunny Santa Monica, California. The award supports the artist by providing a monthly stipend, a furnished live-in studio, and arranged opportunities to inspire Jazz students in partnership with Los Angeles-area colleges and universities.
Special thanks to our collaborative partner Blue Whale.
