New York, NY. -- On Thursday, March 2nd at 7pm, in the Performance Space at 41 White Street, the Tribeca Jazz Institute (TJI) at Church Street School for Music & Art (CSSMA) will host their second monthly Jam Session sponsored by Keyed Up! The evening will feature performances by legendary Tenor Saxophonist Harry Allen, as well as the students of the inaugural class of the Tribeca Jazz Institute.

Founded at the end of 2022, the Tribeca Jazz Institute at Church Street School for Music & Art was created by top NYC jazz artists as a way to guide and support exceptional young musicians whose goal is to take their playing to the next level. TJI boasts a faculty roster packed with renowned artists including: Grant Stewart, Jeremy Pelt, Jeb Patton, Pasquale Grasso, Bruce Harris, David Hazeltine, and Ed Cherry.

​”We teach jazz as a language passed down directly from one generation to the next, focusing only on what’s necessary to become the best jazz musician you can be,” said TJI Founder, Artistic Director, and acclaimed saxophonist Grant Stewart. “We believe in the incalculable value of this art form. We also believe a young artist should not be saddled with the often insurmountable debt that comes with earning a jazz performance degree at any major university today. Our program is selective, affordable, and effective.”

All are invited to stop by, join in on the session, or simply sit back and enjoy an inexpensive evening of amazing Jazz music in the heart of Tribeca. This is a free event with a $15 suggested donation for entry. All proceeds go towards scholarships for future Tribeca Jazz Institute students.
