Leon Lee Dorsey Part of Oberlin Jazz Festivities

Leon Lee Dorsey was one of several jazz luminaries on hand for the opening of Oberlin Conservatory’s new jazz facility, the Bertram and Judith Kohl Building. Dorsey took part in ceremonies honoring Stevie Wonder and Bill Cosby, including a free concert at Oberlin’s famed Finney Chapel. Dorsey also escorted Wonder to the podium when it was time for the Motown superstar to receive his honorary doctorate. A graduate of Oberlin Conservatory and Manhattan School of Music, Dorsey is Assistant Professor of Jazz Performance and Coordinator of Jazz Studies for Pitt’s Department of Music. He will be on tour in Jamaica with the Pitt Jazz Ensemble from May 3–14.
