Made possible through generous funding from Emerson and support from the E. Desmond Lee Fine Arts Education Collaborative, the Emerson Jazz in the Schools program brings visiting Jazz at the Bistro artists to area schools at no cost. The artists participate in a number of different activities, including performances, master classes and clinics.
Artists are only available on Thursday or Friday afternoons and are booked on a first come, first-served basis.
