NYO Jazz gives outstanding young jazz musicians from across the country the opportunity to perform as cultural ambassadors on an international stage, sharing a uniquely American musical genre with cultures around the world through an international tour.
In 2020, NYO Jazz’s program activities will take place online in light of the ongoing effects of COVID-19. From July 6 to 17, members of NYO Jazz will engage in digital training, mentorship, and performances led by esteemed jazz artists and national youth ensemble alumni. In addition to taking part in private lessons, studio sectionals, and master classes, participants will have the opportunity to make music together as part of an inspiring community of extraordinary musicians. Further details about digital offerings in the summer of 2020, including a schedule of events available for viewing by audiences at home, will be announced later in June.
