Local Teen Musicians selected to perform in the Next Generation Women in Jazz Combo at the 66th Monterey Jazz Festival this month

The prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival created the Next Generation Women in Jazz Combo in 2019 to feature top high school women jazz players from across the country. Only six students are chosen each year, and this year two of them are from Sacramento and the SacJEF programs.

CapRadio’s Excellence in Jazz host Avery Jeffry recently sat down with the two students, Paloma Cobbs-Silva and Salome Ospina, to discuss their journey to Monterey. Both students have participated in the Teagarden Jazz Camp and TNT, programs of the Sacramento Jazz Education Foundation, and credit these programs with instilling their love for playing traditional jazz.
