The show will also showcase a variety of BMS's ensembles and students including our student jazz ensemble, a choir from BMS's outreach site at PS38, and our adult chorale ensemble.

The BMS Jazz department is directed by Jeff Newell and Brian Woodruff. One of BMS's signature events is its annual Middle School Jazz festival hosted each year in March, where jazz bands from several local high schools come to BMS for a full day of jazz workshops, performances, and master classes with an high level jazz musician. Past master teachers at the Middle School Jazz Festival have included drummer Dr. Victor Lewis and trumpeter Ingrid Jensen. BMS currently has three jazz ensembles including our: one o'clock and two o'clock jump jazz ensembles, as well as our, adult jazz ensemble.

The Brooklyn Music School views music and performance as the birthright of all people, an essential way that human beings connect with others and explore their creativity. The study of music has been demonstrated to enhance academic learning and helps to develop discipline and confidence that will serve children well throughout their lives.As part of the vision of reinventing the community music school for the 21st Century, BMS is dedicated to:

* Making high quality musical instruction approachable and affordable to a wide range of students,

* Creating frequent opportunities for performance for our students and cultural enrichment for our community,

* Representing a wide range of musical traditions, including European, African, Middle Eastern, and American to represent the diversity of Brooklyn's musical talent, and

* Offering a warm and welcoming space for families and individuals to explore new talents and make lasting friendships.
