New Season! We listened to some fine young jazz artist candidates from the KC region audition to start the process of selecting the 2020 KC Area Youth Jazz Fellows. We have more auditions yet to conduct and will announce selections the first week of March.

This is a progressive program in our second full season. Our sincere congratulations to all of the 2019 KC Area Your Jazz Fellows on an outstanding 4-month season and for recording a great professional album to be released on the ARC Label. It truly sounds GREAT! Thanks again to Dr. Arthur White for writing some great music for Youth Jazz! We are planning a "listening event" in conjunction with the start of the 2020 KC Area Youth Jazz season.
You can download the 2020 Audition Letter PDF directly with active links to the audition materials as well.

2020 SEASON AUDITION GALLERY
KC Area Youth Jazz Auditions are now held live at the BRC Audio Productions studio by appointment. Our process no longer requires making videos like those below. The videos demonstrate a level of proficiency that most successful YOUTH JAZZ applicants possess.
2020 KCAYJ FELLOWSHIPS
BECOMING A KCAYJ FELLOW
YOUTH JAZZ will announce the individual names and respective instruments of current fellows along with their home city or town.
Significant music educators like band directors and private instructors will also be acknowledged.
KCAYJ appreciates the fact that most of the leading jazz artists working in the field today significantly benefited from the collective efforts of the entire jazz community.
We believe it is important for balance and perspective to acknowledge the involvement of our music educator colleagues who teach and mentor KCAYJ FELLOWS.
