EAST ORANGE, NJ - The Cicely Tyson School of Performing Arts (with the assistance of jazz radio professionals from 88.3 fm - WBGO.org) will present ‘Kids Jazz’: an interactive and participatory musical experience for young and old alike. 

The event will feature professional jazz bassist Mimi Jones and her jazz quintet who will use their music to impart history and instill inspiration to our young students in this unique edutainment format.

TAPinto staff gained a ‘birds-eye’ view of the program intent from Jones in a recent interview. In it she expressed the importance of teaching our young people the history that created and sustains jazz as an authentic American born musical genre.  She enthusiastically outlined the program highlights including audience participation and featured youths helping make music with the pros.

The event promises to be a great time for the entire family. It begins 12:30 - 1:30 on Saturday October 10, 2015 at the Cicely Tyson School Performing Arts Center 35 Winans Street, East Orange, NJ.
