These plans are fully predicated on being able to gather safely according to recommendations of our health and government officials. Read full update

JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band

Established in 2006, the JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band (YBB) is a free educational program that provides the opportunity for selected middle- and high-school students to rehearse with an 18-piece big band and perform with international jazz luminaries. The JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band program is designed to provide outstanding educational instruction that allows participants to develop musical and social skills while interacting in a diverse, professional setting. Many of the participants are featured in our Where Are They Now? series.

The JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band is led by musical director Jules Estrin, one of Canada’s most in-demand jazz ensemble clinicians, adjudicators and educators.
