ENSEMBLE PLACEMENT
2021-22

Ensembles are chosen very carefully and thoughtfully so all students are placed in a group that provides them with a good balance of fun and challenge. Given the nature of ensemble work and the way students are placed, we are unable to accommodate alternative schedule requests. We ask that all of our students prioritize their ensemble time with Young Lions Jazz Conservatory so every member can reap the educational benefits and ensembles are prepared for performances.
