JOI and Nevada School of the Arts students together at NSA DREAM Gala
Jazz Outreach Initiative was thrilled to be invited to participate in this year's Nevada School of the Arts 45th Anniversary DREAM Gala hosted by NSA Pres./CEO Raja Rahman at Myron's Jazz Cabaret at The Smith Center December 6, 2022.
Gary Cordell (VP Education & Programming for JOI) and Charles McNeal (Dir. NSA Jazz) brought together Las Vegas Youth Jazz Orchestra members Max Solomon (drums) and Ben Bernstein (bass) with NSA's Christian Esquivel (piano) and Charles McNeal (sax) to perform Ellington's classic, "Take the A Train."
The entire evening was a celebration of the arts and the many arts organizations who work together collaboratively to make Las Vegas a special place to learn and grow for students.
