Ten seniors were se- leeted from their Jazz group to travel to the US and take part in one of the most premier Jazz eonferenees in the world, the 2013 Jazz Edueation Network Conferenee in Atlanta.

The Master Class gave the teens an opportunity to learn from one another and led to a meaningful dialogue between the two eul- tures through their eommon lan guage- musie.
