The Premiere Ensembles of Music Settlement will be in concert at Legacy Village this Sunday May 18th at 2:00 pm.
Reflecting The Music Settlement's location in University Circle, The Music Settlement will present a unique, exciting and diverse program, which will include our J@MS (Jazz at The Music Settlement) Big Bands and Centennial Strings.
The big bands are the ensembles in our J@MS program, a weekly half-day immersion for students ages 12-18. The J@MS Ensembles feature a range of advanced and challenging material under the direction of our highly professional faculty.
A partner of The Berklee City Music Network, our J@MS program is nationally known for its musical excellence and high number of graduating seniors receiving scholarships to notable colleges and conservatories.
More than a traditional orchestra, Centennial Strings features a rhythm section with a DJ, rapper, electric guitar, and bass. The group was formed by Megan Clay Constantine PhD, Chair of the Center for Music & Director of youth orchestras at The Music Settlement.
