Guest Artist with The JLCYO at Dizzy’s
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Orchestra (JLCYO) consists of 20 exceedingly talented and dedicated high school students in the tri-state area (NY, NJ, and CT). Members have the opportunity to enhance their musical education with the finest professional training and performance opportunities. The JLCYO rehearses weekly in Frederick P. Rose Hall, the state-of-the-art home of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
The Jazz Houston Youth Orchestra (JHYO) is a 21-member, audition-only ensemble consisting of the most talented young jazz musicians in the Greater Houston Area. Currently in its inaugural year, the JHYO is directed by Trombonist/Educator Vincent Gardner and Associate Director, Saxophonist/Educator David Caceres. Jazz Houston’s Youth Orchestra program exposes these young musicians to music from all eras of Jazz, and also includes periodic instruction in Music Theory, Improvisation, Music Etiquette, and how to function in the music business.
The group has had the pleasure of performing for the Houston community on many occasions, among them at Houston’s Jones Hall before the Houston Symphony Pops concert dedicated to Louis Armstrong, and for the Houston Rodeo’s Black Heritage Day.
Join us to support young musicians and hear some of the most dedicated up-and-comers in jazz.
