From May 12 to 16, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute will present a workshop for young jazz instrumentalists led by renowned Latin jazz artist Paquito D'Rivera. The prolific composer, conductor, clarinetist, and saxophonist teams up with members of his ensemble to mentor these young jazz musicians during an intensive weeklong workshop, co-designed by acclaimed bassist and educator Oscar Stagnaro, that culminates with a concert in Zankel Hall on Friday, May 16 at 7:30 p.m.

Following the live workshop, Musical Exchange members will also have the opportunity to participate in a series of online discussions and activities related to the work of Paquito D’Rivera.
