Meet the stars of tomorrow as some of the region’s finest high school ensembles face off in front of a panel of judges made up of professional Latin jazz musicians Eddie Palmieri, David DeJesus, Ray Vega, and Ricardo Rodriguez. Each ensemble will perform a 30-minute set for the public and receive feedback on their performances from our judges. The most exceptional students from each group will be invited to perform as part of the Tribute to Eddie Palmieri later in the evening.
A festival ticket will allow you all afternoon access to the PepsiCo Theatre. Catch one band or make a day of it and hear them all!
Participating ensembles: Jazz House Kids Latin Jazz Ensemble (Montclair, NJ), Celia Cruz High School (Bronx, NY), Susan Wagner High School (Staten Island, NY), All-City Jazz Orchestra (Manhattan, NY), and All-City Latin Orchestra (Manhattan, NY).
