Jazz for Kids Program Hits 10 Years

October 19, 2012

New York jazz club the Jazz Standard is beginning its tenth season of the popular “Jazz for Kids” Sunday series this year. The season kicked off with a concert by the Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra with guitarist Howard Paul and vocalist Paul Jost.

For the past 10 years, Jazz Standard has been hosting live audiences of all ages as part of its weekly brunch series. The Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra (JSYO) has served as an important training ground for more than 30 talented musicians between the ages of 11 and 18.  At the Standard, the orchestra has the weekly chance to burn through jazz classics such as “Cherokee,” “How Insensitive,” and “Billie’s Bounce” every Sunday afternoon from 2:00pm-3:00pm.
