The New York Youth Symphony Jazz Band is considered by many to be one of the best ensembles of its kind. The members of this band range from age 12-22, making the quality of their sound even more astonishing. The ensemble focuses on the music of the big band orchestras of the 1930s and 1940s, working to preserve jazz traditions and styles. While celebrating the heritage of jazz, the group also values a progressive, emerging new sound. For this season’s performance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, they have commissioned three young musicians to write original compositions. This show will be an exciting glimpse at the future of jazz, led by some of the most talented young musicians in the New York area.
