As organizers gear up for a second year, the U City Jazz Festival is looking for young musicians who want to take part in its Young Lions Jazz Education initiative for 2012. Festival co-founder Mike Silverman, who's also the keyboardist for Bach to the Future, is seeking jazz groups whose members are all under the age of 21 to perform at the second UCJF, which will be held in September.
The group selected will get $500 for their performance. If you're interested, or know a young jazz musician from the St. Louis area who might be, you can contact Silverman and submit website information, sound clips and so on via email to mike @ silvermanmusic.com.
