jazz_combo_1The Jazz Education Network (JEN) has invited Milton Academy’s Advanced Jazz Combo to perform at this year’s JEN Conference on Friday, January 6 and Saturday, January 7. Milton’s musicians will travel to Louisville, Kentucky, to attend the two-day conference and play alongside some of the best school combos from around the world.

“The Jazz Combo will present a musical tribute to JEN’s first legends of jazz education—Jamey Aebersold, David Baker, Jerry Coker and Dan Haerle—by performing their compositions,” says jazz faculty member Bob Sinicrope. “The students will also attend many clinics and performances during their time at the conference.”

The expected attendance at the conference is 3,000 people from all corners of the globe. The Jazz Education Network’s mission is to “build the jazz arts community by advancing education, promoting performance, and developing new audiences.”
