Stages have gone dark, and we’ve expanded this series to include not only students but our illustrious alumni, live from… somewhere. Shea Welsh is a consummate professional who has built a multi-faceted career. He’s toured the world performing his own music. He’s the director of The Shea Welsh Institute of Jazz for young musicians, and he’s led USC’s Summer Guitar Seminar for 18 years, training high school musicians who have themselves gone on to successful careers.
Shea performed a version of the jazz standard, “Alone Together.” It is a fitting and purposeful choice because isn’t that what we all are? Alone, but together?
