Established in 2008, the JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band is a free educational program that provides the opportunity for selected middle and high school students to rehearse with an 18-piece big band and perform with international jazz luminaries. The group rehearses each week with Musical Director, Jules Estrin, and performs concerts at prestigious venues in Toronto and beyond. Over the years, they have shared the stage with legendary Jazz figures such as Joey DeFrancesco, Bucky Pizzarelli, Tom Scott, Lew Tabackin, Guido Basso and Al Jarreau.
