Youth Jazz Orchestra is being offered by South Dallas Cultural Center and Thriving Minds.
South Dallas Cultural and Thriving Minds are joining forces to share the love of music and the excitement of jazz improvisation with the next generation. The Thriving Minds Youth Jazz Orchestra (TMYJO) brings together some of the top jazz musicians in North Texas like Wendell Sneed, Roger Boykin, and Shelley Carroll, to lead instrument-specific clinics and workshops in an effort to meet an increased interest in music education and offer classes not available in public schools.
The program is free and open to youth 12 years of age and older, but space is limited. Register by calling South Dallas Cultural Center at 214-939-2787. Registration is opened until the end of the year. All levels are welcome. Classes take place on Saturdays during November and December from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the South Dallas Cultural Center, 3400 South Fitzhugh, Dallas, TX 75210.
