The JM Jazz World Orchestra is a project launched by Jeunesses Musicales International giving the opportunity to young musicians from all around the world to take part in training sessions, workshops and finally in a concert tour as a member of the JM Jazz Orchestra.
The session will be in summer 2020. JM Jazz World sessions begin with a week of rehearsals, followed by a 7 – 10 day concert/festival tour. The project will be under the artistic leadership of Luis Bonilla (USA), a California raised, Costa Rican trombonist, composer and arranger.
The programme is open to musicians between the ages of 18 and 26 playing: saxophone, trombone, trumpet, horn, tuba, guitar, bass, drums, percussion, piano and vocals.
Participants should complete the application form, attaching the following documents:
- a full CV with information about faculty of music, academy and school of music, and experience acquired as a jazz musician;
- a written recommendation from a music teacher professor or similar;
- a signed statement from either your parents, yourself, university, school or a JMI National Member or Associate Section, stating that their travel costs to and from the tour will be covered;
- links to videos with them performing at least 2 different pieces: a theme and an improvisation. The candidates need to be clearly heard, with an important soloist part.
