westchesterjazz.jpgChildren will be introduced to the various style and elements of jazz, as well as the role and responsibility of each instrument, when the Westchester Jazz Orchestra visits the Cole Auditorium on Saturday, February 27, at 2 p.m. A special sextet from the award-winning Westchester County-based jazz orchestra will demonstrate the fun of jazz in their exhilarating presentation, "Intro to Jazz."

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.

Pick up free, unassigned seating tickets (limit six per person) at the Cole Auditorium at noon, and return when doors open at 1:50 pm. For more information, please contact the Public Relations Office at 622-7965.
