The Jazz Ecosystem: The jazz ecosystem is composed of many inhabitants, ranging from musicians to educators, presenters, record labels, radio stations and clubs – all of which play an equally important role in keeping jazz music alive. This forum will focus on the role of educators, performers and presenters in the jazz world as it exists today and feature a live performance by the students of the DSO’s Civic Jazz Orchestra.
