$3000 for a 10-piece band consisting of Saxophone, Lead Vocalist, Keyboard, Bass, Drums and a 5-member Youth Chorus. The musicians are all top area jazz musicians.
The hosting School/Program has the option, if it chooses and if time permits, for the Youth Chorus to be comprised of students from your own school. In this case, the elementary music teacher at your school would coordinate with Mr. Greenberg to recruit and rehearse students from your school. Mr. Greenberg will furnish learning packets with music, CDs/MP3s and scripts. There is also the possibility of adding additional horn players to the performance from your Middle School and/or High School. Again, Mr. Greenberg would coordinate with your faculty and administration to provide music, CDs/MP3s and to schedule rehearsals at your school.
