The Philharmonic Association, in partnership with the North Carolina Museum of History, will present a Jazz Appreciation Month Concert featuring the Triangle Youth Jazz Ensemble (TYJE). TYJE is directed by Dr. Gregg Gelb and is comprised of advanced high school musicians, selected by annual audition in August. The concert will include selections from the many tunes TYJE has performed this year such as “Satin Doll,” “Jada,” “Cute,” “The American Patrol,” “April in Paris,” “Blue Skies,” “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” “Little Brown Jug,” “Stompin’ at the Savoy,” “Our Love is Here To Stay,” “Just in Time,” and “You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To.” During the 2010-11 season the group played on the Cary Sertoma Series, opened for a Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra concert, gave a children’s concert at the Nasher Museum’s Family Day, performed at the Elon Jazz Festival, and will open for a Gregg Gelb Jazz Quartet event at Marsh Woodwinds in May. TYJE earned a Superior rating at the 2011 Elon Jazz Festival. The performance is free and open to the public.
