The weekend includes a day of workshops led by music educators and seasoned players from the three Mingus legacy groups (Dynasty, Big Band, Orchestra); a full day devoted to the Competition; and special concerts by the Mingus Big Band. Outstanding high school soloists from the Competition will be invited to sit in with the Big Band on Sunday night (2/14) – and the winning soloist will be eligible for a full tuition scholarship at Manhattan School Of Music.
