Now in its sixth season and led by founder and director Spencer Sussman, East Bay Jazz High School All-Stars is a high-caliber musical performance and education after school program for high school jazz musicians.

Teen jazz students from Fremont to Brentwood, including the Tri-Valley, not only gain real-world performance experience, but develop their skills within the jazz idiom and share their love of music with the community.

"Whatever their background, most importantly this program has fostered a musical community for students of the East Bay, which helps create lasting memories during these formative years of their lives," Livermore Arts officials said.

Twenty-one students are currently enrolled in the program, which has seen over 100 students participate since 2016. Performances for the group occur frequently between January and June and consist of two ensembles -- big band and combo.
