The New York City-based nonprofit JazzReach will celebrate its 17th year with an extensive spring 2012 tour and related outreach events through mid-June (see below for tour dates). The spring season features numerous performances of JazzReach’s live multimedia educational programs for students in grades K-12, main-stage performances for all audiences and clinics, master classes and workshops for student bands and ensembles. All JazzReach activities are carried out exclusively by the organization’s house ensemble Metta Quintet

Season highlights include the inaugural presentations of two new live multimedia educational programs: Ellington! and Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident, which merge live music with video projections, live narration and lighting design to create educational experiences.
