Sean Jones by Conrad Louis-Charles, Kurt Elling by Anna Webber
Trumpeter Sean Jones leads NYO Jazz in a concert that explores the scope of jazz music, from big band and bebop to Latin and soul. The bright young musicians of NYO Jazz hail from across the United States and are “astonishing, not just technically but stylistically” (The Telegraph). Grammy Award–winner Kurt Elling joins the group as special guest artist, bringing his signature baritone voice and unparalleled scatting prowess to the evening.

For anyone 18 years old or younger, tickets are only $10. Please call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800 or visit the Box Office.
