Taking the big band into the new millennium, Brooklyn's own MK Groove Orchestra has developed an innovative approach to one of America's oldest art forms that satisfies audiences as diverse as its musical palette.

Clinic/Workshop Information:
The objectives of our clinic are to expose students to concepts, history and artists outside of the realm of the standard jazz curriculum that we feel are a vital part of the music, through performance, discussion and workshop-ing of MK Groove Orchestra Repertoire. We aim to establish a dialogue with students, while engaging them and challenging them to absorb new concepts and question old ones. Perhaps the most important service we offer as clinicians however, is a glimpse into the lives of a cross section of young professional musicians, and how they navigate the post-college world while being committed to developing their artistry and plying their trade with integrity and perseverance.
