JazzU is a fun, hands-on learning experience that brings together talented middle and high school musicians for small jazz combo instruction on a weekly basis. The competitive program selected 53 emerging musicians from a pool of 130 who auditioned for the 2016-17 season. This weekend’s shows feature the top two performing ensembles in the JazzU program, which includes the premier group, the Jazz St. Louis All-Stars. Special guest artist, saxophonist Antonio Hart, will be leading clinics with the two groups prior to performing with them during these concerts.
Jazz St. Louis is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to lead our community in advancing the uniquely American art of jazz through live performance, education and community engagement.
