Will Anderson Will Anderson

”Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (New York Times) Washington, D.C. natives Peter and Will Anderson were drawn to jazz at a very young age. While still teenagers, they toured The United Kingdom, performed on Capitol Hill, and were featured on television. Endorsees of D’Addario woodwind products, Peter and Will attended Juilliard in New York City, where they currently reside. They’ve played with the Jimmy Heath Big Band, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and the Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.

Peter and Will have headlined at The Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center, D.C.’s Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sarasota Florida Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s Jazz Corner, Seattle’s Triple Door, Miami-Dade’s Cultural Arts Center, and The Arizona Music Festival. Their ensemble has performed in 30 U.S. States, toured Japan, and featured four times in NYC’s famed “Highlights in Jazz” series, alongside legends Lou Donaldson, Paquito D’Rivera, and Wycliffe Gordon. As clinicians, Peter and Will have taught at the College of Charleston, Temple University, and Michigan State University among others.

Peter and Will’s 2012 debut release, Correspondence, features Kenny Barron and was chosen by Vanity Fair magazine alongside Miles Davis in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz.” Most recently, Peter and Will are featured on JAZZIZ Magazine’s Winter 2014 CD Soundtrack

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
