NYOJ Does It Again!
In January 2013 the NYOJ hosted a brass quintet, the Guapos, from the Lynn Conservatory at Lynn University. The group’s two week stay included three performances, and several workshops both in Kingston and Montego Bay. The Guapos were accompanied by Lisa Leonard, a chamber musician and educator, heading the Instrumental Collaborative Piano Programme at Lynn University who held masterclasses at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and Marc Reese, assistant dean at Lynn University who spearheaded brass masterclasses for the Jamaica Defense Force and Constabulary Force bands as well as the Salvation Army.
