The Chicago Community Trust Young Jazz Lions Stage

Now heading into its third year, the Jazz Links Youth Ensemble, a joint project of the Jazz Institute of Chicago and Columbia College Chicago, brings together elementary and high school kids from all over the city – kids who devote themselves to learning andplaying jazz on Saturdays during the school year and on a more concentrated basis during the summer months. Their performances are full of surprises, among them how fast these kids can learn so much. Much credit goes to their directors, Mark Coulter, Carlos Ayento and Madeleine Mollinedo, all longstanding instructors in Chicago Public Schools.
