Toronto, Canada // Storrs, CT (via ZOOM)
This week Alex Dean and Earl MacDonald join the JAZZ.FM91 Virtual Big Band program for our first Big Band Blindfold Test!
Established in 2006, the JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band (YBB) is a free educational program that provides the opportunity for selected middle- and high-school students to rehearse with an 18-piece big band and perform with international jazz luminaries. The JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band program is designed to provide outstanding educational instruction that allows participants to develop musical and social skills while interacting in a diverse, professional setting. The JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band is led by musical director Jules Estrin, one of Canada’s most in-demand jazz ensemble clinicians, adjudicators and educators.
