The Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra (JSYO), a breeding ground for appx. 35 talented musicians between the ages of 11 and 18, burns through jazz classics such as "Cherokee," "How Insensitive," and "Billie's Bounce" every Sunday afternoon from 2:00pm-3:00pm. Jazz for Kids offers NYC's student musicians the opportunity to play exciting new arrangements of big band classics, and families the opportunity to connect with the music in a lively environment.
