Jazz is the inspiration for today's exploration of the New World in the spirit of Dvorak. From Gershwin's first steps to bring jazz into the concert hall to Stravinsky's Scenes de Ballet which take their inspiration from Cole Porter songs to Bernstein's masterpiece of steamy multi-cultural passion in West Side Story, this is a world bursting with vitality.
