The third annual Brooklyn Music School Jazz Festival, an exciting middle-school festival taking place at the school on Saturday, March 5, 2016, from 11:00 AM to 5:30 PM
The festival will feature performances by participating middle schools, clinics by the BMS faculty, professional development for participating school faculty members, and a closing concert/awards ceremony. We are very excited to have this year’s event hosted by our guest artist Robin Eubanks, the cutting-edge trombonist who is redefining the role of his instrument in modern jazz. Robin will be working with students as well as performing with the Brooklyn Music School Jazz Faculty Ensemble.
Though the festival is non-competitive, Mr. Eubanks and our faculty will be adjudicating performances to offer suggestions and encouragement as well as awarding certificates for outstanding musicianship. BMS intends for this festival to strengthen middle school jazz programs in Brooklyn.
