The Competition is open to all high-school age instrumental soloists who reside and attend school in Michigan.

Description
The Beaver Island Preforming Arts Alliance, the BIC Center and WVBI are thrilled to bring a jazz series back to the island after a multi-year hiatus. Events will be spread across the summer season and into the fall at a variety of venues continuing with this performance by the Young Lions Collective at the BIC Center.

The Young Lions Collective represents the best and brightest of Michigan’s next generation of jazz musicians. This collaboration of wildly talented young musicians will take audiences on a journey through an extensive history of jazz. This performance will be a truly unique and memorable tribute to the tremendous legacy of jazz. Join us in the theater at the BIC Center as they envision the future of jazz.
