Tom Lee Music Vancouver is proud to be hosting a very special TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival Big Band Open Rehearsal Concert on Saturday June 30th at 12:30 PM featuring some of BC’s best and brightest young high school jazz students in the TD High School Jazz Intensive with Nicole Mitchell.
The TD High School Jazz Intensive is the culmination of an intensive nine-day artistic residency for Vancouver High School Students selected through a rigorous audition process. This Big Band presents some of tomorrow's great rising stars. Led by conductor Nicole Mitchell, the residency held at Tom Lee Music Vancouver’s Music Hall, is about whom All About Jazz raves "there isn't a more talented flautist...composer or large-ensemble band leader in improvised music today".
As the host of the TD High School Jazz Intensive program, Tom Lee Music invites all jazz enthusiasts to show their support for our young jazz musicians by attending the free concert tomorrow at 929 Granville Street at 12:30 PM and Tom Lee Music & TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
