EMERSON JAZZ
IN THE SCHOOLS

The Emerson Jazz in the Schools program allows students from area schools to experience the world-class musicians in a world-class venue, the Ferring Jazz Bistro. School groups attending a performance will arrive at 11 am for lunch, provided by Jazz St. Louis, followed by a performance and conversation with one of our amazing artists in the Ferring Jazz Bistro. Performances will finish by 12:30 pm. This program is made possible through generous funding from Emerson and support from the E. Desmond Lee Fine Arts Education Collaborative and the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation.
