New Season!

We have listened to some fine young jazz artist candidates from the KC region audition for the 2020 KC Area Youth Jazz Fellows.

We have at least two more auditions yet to conduct and anticipate announcing fellowship selections the second or third week of March.
BRASS WANTED

We would like to hear trumpet and trombone players – these two chairs do not require improvisation, but must be very good brass players. #getinvolved #youthjazz #seasontwo

KC Area Youth Jazz is a unique and progressive jazz education focused program in our second full season.

* Event durations (if noted) are approximate. Please check with the presenting organization or venue to confirm start times and duration.

  • ABOUT YOUTH JAZZ

    Our professional staff and esteemed faculty are unpaid volunteers. Our motivation is to pass down our professional knowledge of the jazz music art form to our youngest generations. We do this through a four-month season of 16 rehearsals, concerts, and recording sessions. Fellows perform original compositions written specifically for them, learn the process of preparing music for commercial release, and learn about booking live performances in the community, among other vital skills. Among our goals is to immerse participants in an artist-level program that helps provide useful insights before attending college, university or conservatory music programs. The KC Area Youth Jazz experience helps refine and inform such decisions. We seek funding support of the program by selling the recordings we produce, chair sponsorships, booking concerts, donations, and grants. We use this funding for strategic investments in this project and for arts integration purposes.
