Jazz at Lincoln Center

WeBop is Jazz at Lincoln Center’s award-winning, early-childhood jazz education program for little ones from ages eight months to seven years and their parents/caregivers. We strongly believe in children’s natural ability to improvise and we are committed to exploring their creativity through fun interactive classes! Children and grownups express themselves through movement, singing, clapping, and playing small percussion instruments. Throughout this interactive eight-week term, you and your child will explore core concepts of jazz such as swing, blues, improvisation, and other jazz essentials. Together, you will develop your imagination, creativity, and musicality while swinging nursery rhymes, singing the blues away, scatting like Ella or improvising like Coltrane, and jamming with a live jazz band!

Join the jazz all-star group ARTEMIS—pianist and musical director Renee Rosnes, clarinetist Anat Cohen, tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, bassist Noriko Ueda, drummer Allison Miller and featured vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant—as they talk with WBGO’s Nate Chinen about their critically acclaimed debut album on Blue Note Records.

Comprising seven of the most accomplished musicians, bandleaders and composers in jazz, the international, intergenerational supergroup made its electrifying North American debut on 92Y’s stage in 2017. They return to reflect on and share tracks from their album, to talk about the group synergy built on individual personality that drives their “sleek, rhythm-forward, modern sound" (NPR), and the evolving term “women in jazz”—a phrase the band is handily nudging toward obsolescence.
