Jazzed Up!

Grades: All ages

Metta Quintet is a cohesive, tight-knit unit featuring some of today’s most esteemed and creative jazz artists. Its musicians are fueled by open-minded musical curiosity, and dedicated to exploring new artistic territory while maintaining a passionate commitment to arts education, fostering new audiences, and nurturing young talent.

Prior to the Jazzed Up presentation, members of the Quintet will conduct Master Classes with the Poughkeepsie High School Jazz Ensemble, providing an opportunity for students to perform excerpts from their repertoire for constructive critique and evaluation. The culmination of the residency/master classes will bring Metta Quintet and the PHS Jazz Ensemble together to perform on the Bardavon stage.
