The New York Youth Symphony Jazz Band is one of the best ensembles of its kind. The members of this group range in age from early teens to early 20s, making the quality of their performance even more astonishing. While celebrating the heritage of jazz, the group also values a progressive, emerging new sound. Joining the band this evening are two distinguished jazz professionals with exemplary reputations for their involvement in music education: trombonist Ryan Keberle and trumpeter Matt Holman. The show will feature the world premiere of Sam Wolsk’s Not a Day Missed, commissioned as part of the 35th Anniversary of the New York Youth Symphony First Music Commissioning Series. Enjoy the latest addition to a lineage of great big band jazz music championed by this gifted young band.
