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 Friday afternoons. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis. No applicant is guaranteed an artist visit and all decisions are made at the discretion of Jazz St. Louis education staff. Artists that are no longer available will be crossed off.
*Applications for the 2015-16 Emerson Jazz in the Schools program will be available July 31*

Teachers, be sure to check out Jazz St. Louis’s Preparatory Lessons (under the link to the left), specially designed for schools participating in the Emerson Jazz in the Schools program. These fun and engaging lessons will teach your students about jazz in advance of the performance.
