NYJA® Faculty Organize COVID-19 Relief Concerts for Musicians

Coronavirus (COVID-19) shutdowns resulted immediately in musicians’ concerts getting cancelled around the country. New York Jazz Academy® faculty vocalists Sirintip and Thana Alexa, stepped up immediately, organizing a series of living room concerts in early April. Thanks to their efforts, over $55,000 has been raised for a musician relief fund. Their efforts were also featured in a Rolling Stone Magazine article.
