The mission of the Westchester Jazz Orchestra is to promote jazz, contribute to its evolution and advance the appreciation and understanding of this uniquely American cultural treasure. Drawing upon the talent of renowned Westchester-based professional musicians, composers and arrangers, the Orchestra performs a broad range of jazz works from classic standards to commissioned pieces. It is also committed to inspiring young listeners with outreach programs in jazz education.
The Ashforth Children's Concert Series is designed to expose children to classical and jazz music performance. The 45-minute long show is appropriate for elementary school children.
