Based out of New York City, the Young Lions Jazz Orchestra is a 16-piece jazz ensemble comprised of some of the best emerging artists from the New York and Greater Boston areas. Under the direction of bandleader and composer Kira Daglio Fine, they offer a fresh and exciting approach to the big band style.
