renowned performance venues. elite guest artists. premiere jazz education
We are excited to announce the third season of hvJAZZ at Suny Ulster. We are making a few changes that will propel the program further and allow for more participation. This season we are expanding to three ensembles.
The Hudson Valley Youth Jazz Orchestra will be focused on establishing one of the best youth jazz programs in upstate NY. The hvJAZZ/Suny Ulster Jazz Ensemble will give students the opportunity to learn the great big band repertoire. The hvJAZZ Lab will give students the opportunity to develop jazz skills including improvisation.
Please email us if you any questions including which track would be appropriate.
