August 1, 2011

The series continues every Monday through August 29. The concerts take place in the Upper Courtyard at the Charles Hotel.
Felix Peikli, from Oslo, Norway, found his way into music through the local marching band, where he played clarinet. In his mission to help others through music, Peikli held an AIDS benefit concert in 2007 to coincide with Harry Belafonte's visit to Oslo that raised $5,000 for the cause. In 2010, he performed his first international tour, appearing at the Oslo Jazz Festival, TV2, NRK1, and Rica Victoria. Peikli, a full-tuition scholarship recipient, is a member of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute and appears on Octave, the latest CD by Jazz Revelation Records.
