KPLU’s School of Jazz program is searching for new schools to participate in its program that pairs Northwest high school jazz bands with professional jazz musicians and mentors, culminating in the recording of a CD. School of Jazz raises funds for the schools’ music programs, and KPLU plays music from each year’s CD release.
The program is searching for a variety of jazz musicians, everything from big bands to smaller ensembles, either vocal or instrumental. The application deadline is Oct. 31.
