Explore the connections between orchestral music and America's music: jazz. This dynamic concert will feature Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA) students performing alongside Grammy-nominated pianist, John Beasley, and his big band, MONK'estra, made up of LA's finest jazz and studio musicians (including members of the Tonight Show Band, Dave Matthews Band, and more). These jazz masters will lead us in lessons on jazz history, swing, improvisation, and groove with the music of Tchaikovsky, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and Abreau reverberating through Walt Disney Concert Hall!.
