We welcome you to this free concert by the Triangle Youth Jazz Orchestra and Triangle Youth Jazz Ensemble (TYJE), groups sponsored by the Philharmonic Association. This concert will be a warm-up for TYJE's return to the national competition Jazz at Lincoln Center Essentially Ellington Festival. In 2016 TYJE was the silver medalist and they are the first and only group from North Carolina selected for this honor. The groups will be honoring Jazz Appreciation Month with selections from Duke Ellington, W.C. Handy, Dizzy Gillespie and Hoagy Carmichael.
