The New World Ensemble
Dave Weigert presents the New World Ensemble, featuring student pianist/composer Miguel Tejada. This group is inspired by Tejada's unique approach of mixing jazz music with Caribbean, South American, Spanish, and African influences. Additional influences include not only the music but also the arts, history, folklore, and legends of the Americas, thus the name the New World Ensemble. Their goal in performing is "to bring the conscience of cultural diversity through our music."
