The Purchase College Conservatory of Music will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its acclaimed Jazz Studies program by presenting special concerts in some of New York City’s most legendary venues featuring students from the highly competitive program.
“It’s an honor to celebrate such an important milestone for Jazz Studies at Purchase,” said noted Jazz pianist Pete Malinverni, who leads the program. “Our alumni are among the most talented and professionally successful in the world, as evidenced by their celebrated work in jazz clubs, ensembles, and on award-winning recordings. We are thrilled to invite the public to check out the next generation of leading jazz artists right in New York City.”
The performance-driven curriculum strives to emphasize the practical, bringing “the street into the classroom.” With world-class performance and rehearsal facilities, the program enjoys an acclaimed reputation among today’s leading institutions.
