JazzArts All-Star Youth Ensemble Showcase: Blues, Bebop and Beyond
May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us as our young ambassadors of jazz, the JazzArts All-Star Youth Ensemble, perform a special evening of music for one night only. Possessing a musical maturity rarely heard from high school musicians, the All-Stars will feature renditions from some of your favorite jazz icons, such as Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, and John Coltrane, including the All-Stars’ original compositions from their 2019 repertoire. Come out and support the future of jazz and the JazzArts Academy scholarships program.
Premiere Thursdays presents a fresh and carefully curated kaleidoscope of exclusively themed programming for one-night only, or as a “premiere” to the popular JAZZ ROOM weekend shows.
The JazzArts All-Star Youth Ensemble is composed of some of the Charlotte region’s brightest talents, including dedicated student musicians from a variety of middle and high schools. These skilled young artists play in venues across the region and continue to earn accolades wherever they perform.
Band members include:
- DJ Bellinger (drums)
- Lovell Bradford, Jr. (bass)
- Veronica Leahy (saxophone, flute)
- Taylor Scott (vocals)
- Aron Stornaiuolo (guitar/vocals)
