Hear fresh and inspired original jazz compositions played by some of today's most creative young performers. Hailing from all parts of the globe, this international group exemplifies the great melting pot that music can create, especially in the U.S. and at Berklee.

Presented by Greg Hopkins, director of the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra (BCJO), and the Harmony and Jazz Composition Department, this concert will premiere five new works by talented Berklee writers, all performed virtually by an ensemble of our best jazz and contemporary performers.
