Brooklyn Jazz Ensemble Members Learn from Leading Jazz Educators

2021 TriC MasterClass 2

The Brooklyn City Schools are home to a vibrant musical education program featuring hard working and talented students led by dedicated music instructors. One of the District’s many points of pride is the Brooklyn High School Jazz Ensemble, which holds the impressive distinction of being one of only five schools to be recognized as a premier institution of secondary jazz education in Northeast Ohio. On Wednesday, April 21st, members of the Brooklyn High School Jazz Ensemble had the special opportunity to work with two of the leading names in jazz education, trumpeter Dominick Farinacci and pianist Jonathan Thomas. The professional tutorial was made possible through the artist outreach program of this year’s Tri-C Jazz Festival, which provides local schools with master classes and clinics taught by professional musicians. Brooklyn students demonstrated strong musicianship and dedication to improving mastery of their respective instruments and vocal performance during the in-person session. Jazz Ensemble members also submitted performance videos for adjudication. Footage from the Jazz Ensemble’s musical clinic with Mr. Farinacci and Mr. Thomas will be available on The Brooklyn Band’s YouTube Channel.
