More than 200 students from Academy of the Americas in Detroit and Novi Woods Elementary School got together Monday for a “Global Jam” led by the New York-based ensemble Classical Jam.
The jam session was part of a daylong program presented by the Chamber Music Society of Detroit in partnership with Bridgepointe, a Detroit-based non-profit organization that unites students from the city and suburbs.
It was also part of the Chamber Music Society of Detroit’s 2013-14 Discovery Series.
Students will remain in touch during the school year through Skype and email, chamber and education officials said.
