08 May Student Spotlight: The Ambassadors Ensemble
Take a listen to the talented JAZZ HOUSE KiDS Ambassadors’ rendition of Chick Corea’s “Bud Powell.” This ensemble is one of 17 weekly classes conducted entirely online with student from 35+ school districts. Even though we temporarily closed the physical doors to our JAZZ HOUSE in March, our virtual doors are swinging wide open and we’ve been delivering our full mission online. The Ambassadors ensemble is directed by Mike Lee, and features Rayner Perez, Trombone; Oliver Koenig, Alto Sax; Jacquie Lee, Violin; Stephen Park, Guitar; James Bally, Piano; Neelan Kumar, Bass; Matt Lee, Drums. This video was recently featured on the International Jazz Day website page in celebration of this music and how it connects us around the globe. Enjoy!
