Mingus Summit Overview

In January, both the jazz combo and big band at The Rivers School were selected from a pool of more than 100 schools in the Northeast to compete in the first annual Charles Mingus Competition at the Manhattan School of Music (MSM) in New York. The two groups were each among the five finalists in their respective categories at the event, which takes place as part of a three-day “Mingus Summit” at MSM February 20 to 22, 2009. This blog captures the thoughts, views, and experiences of two students over the upcoming three days as they head to NYC for the competition.
