Gregg Gelb has done an outstanding job with the TYJE. He raises the bar to their performance, knowledge and creative problem solving. He has introduced a young singer to the group which has been an outstanding growth on the part of the students to patiently hear and tailor their style. This group makes corporate projects a breeze - because the kids are so different with different instruments including vocals- but must work together. It is deserving of a graduate thesis study. As public monies evaporate, this group needs to be known by all to provide that creative problem solving at the highest level.

We are newcomers to this wonderful organization and are thrilled to be part of it! This Group performs alot and has fun. They sound like professionals but he Triangle Youth Jazz Ensemble recognizes that they still are still high school students. It is a nurturing and supportive environment for very talented musicians and students. Many of these students have numerous skills that make them "stand-outs" not only in this group but also at school, debate, Band, sports, youth choir and studies. Gregg Gelb does a wonderful job of encouraging the musicians overall musical talents while balancing these other academic and service attributes.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My son, husband and I have been part of this group this year. The parents are caring and assist in carpooling to different gigs! It is a nice family activity to add to your child's plate if they are lucky enough to be selected.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would work with key business leaders to get these kids to be part of key parties to show the future promise youth of North Carolina will be delivering.

Can't think of any. It has been a wonderful experience all around!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Met some really nice families. Next year, it may be wise to set up coffee and water in a side room so families can get to know each other.
