A mainstay of Jazz at Lincoln Center's programming since 1992, the perennially popular Jazz for Young People series teaches key musical concepts and other fundamentals via hour-long, interactive, family-friendly concerts that illuminate the subject at hand with a light, amusing touch, while delving into a theme from another major performance of the season. The subject of this family concert is "Jazz Meets Gospel," in which the dynamic young pianist and conductor Damien Sneed explores the deep and soulful connections between these two iconic genres, drawing on the music of giants such as Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and Wynton Marsalis to demonstrate how the styles have been combined to create important works. Sneed also appears in Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration in Rose Theater, October 24-26.
