WBGO Celebrates Jazz Appreciation Month
Live In-Studio Performances Showcase Youth Jazz Ensembles
WBGO brings the brightest young jazz talent to our studios for our Jazz Appreciation Month Student Festival every April, as we have done for more than a decade.
Every week this April, WBGO-FM showcased a different student ensemble with vocalists who performed live in our studios for Jazz Appreciation Month. All of these full sets are available online at the links below.
WBGO is proud to offer our listeners this glimpse into the future: these students of today are well on their way to becoming the jazz legends of tomorrow.
