Third Stream Residency at the University of Louisville
Recognizing that classical orchestral and jazz ensemble programs are often disconnected from each other, this university residency will ‘bridge the gap
Orbert Davis has contemplated a radical (r)evolution of Third Stream music; one where jazz, with its tradition of collaboration, openness and improvisation becomes the ethos of the orchestra. This residency program works to educate students on the personal, cultural, societal, and musical benefits of combining classical and jazz.
Under the direction of Orbert Davis, Chicago Jazz Philharmonic travels 3-5 of its core musicians and partners with university orchestras to lead a series of workshops, master classes, and rehearsals to culminate in a performance presenting CJP's signature ‘Third Stream’ repertoire.
