It also “allow young minds to explore the possibilities in jazz” with their Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra:

“a performance driven program that gives talented and dedicated young jazz musicians the opportunity to perform regularly in one of New York City’s leading jazz clubs often with guest artists from the New York scene. The visiting guests give a workshop to the band members in addition to providing the experience of playing with the top musicians on the scene.”

This means every Sunday, from 2pm to 3pm, it’s “Jazz for Kids” where you and your kids can have lunch – to the tunes of these young jazz musicians (11 to 18)! Hear them performing music from Jazz greats like Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker.
