New York City Jazz Festival

Jazz bands and vocal jazz ensembles will collaborate with jazz professionals and perform at the historic Apollo Theater. Each ensemble will have an individual clinic with one of Manhattan Concert Productions’ distinguished clinicians. There is an opportunity for one auditioned jazz ensemble to perform a solo guest appearance during the New York City Jazz Festvial evening concert at the Apollo Theater.

The New York City Jazz Festival has previously featured prominent jazz veterans including outstanding jazz vocalist Kurt Elling, and Grammy-award winning saxophonist, Bob Mintzer, 9-time Grammy winning singer, vocal arranger, producer and founding member of vocal quartet The Manhattan Transfer, Janis Siegel, and John Fedchock’s New York Big Band, one of the freshest, most exciting big bands in jazz.
