Young Sounds of Arizona Training and Auditions
With alumni like Sonia Jason, Joey Sellers, Matt Rollings, Lewis Nash, James Kass, Phillip Strange, Jeff Dellisanti, Dick Weller, Rachel Eckroth, Eric Felten, Alex Han and Vince Wedge (just to name a few!), Young Sounds of Arizona is one of the best training programs for young jazz musicians in the country.
Young Sounds commissions a new tune for big band for our annual Meet the Composer concert. Members are honored to work with these exceptional musicians for that concert. At the end of each year, deserving members receive generous scholarships.
Auditions for the 2013-14 season will be held in June and July at The Musicians Hall. Spread the word to any aspiring musicians you know!
Called “the best young talent in the Valley”, Young Sounds of Arizona consists of 40 young jazz musicians, ages 13 to 18.
Young Sounds of Arizona is an on-going project of American Federation of Musicians Local 586, and led by Music Director Vincent Wedge. The work ethic, attitude, discipline and talented performance of these Young Sounds musicians are surely a powerful example and inspiration for both young and old.
