Spartan Youth Jazz Orchestra (SYJO) provides an opportunity for young musicians to learn and perform music in the Big Band tradition.
Led by acclaimed jazz artist/educator Sean Dobbins, this band expands access to high-level jazz education for metro area youth. Performances take place at renowned jazz venues such as the Music Hall Jazz café. SYJO is for middle school students with one or more years’ playing experience on their instrument. The ensemble is also open to non-traditional jazz instruments including, but not limited to tuba, French horn and strings.
Parking: Limited street parking is available on the streets surrounding Music Hall Jazz Café. Secured parking lots are located nearby and vary in cost from $5-$20.
Additional Information: Students will be asked to sit with their group during the entire concert in a designated seating area. This is not a closed event so please invite your friends and family!
