The Next Generation Women in Jazz Combo and the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra were unlike any honor bands that I have ever experienced. I can say that I had some of the best times in my life while playing with these ensembles. These fellow musicians made the Next Generation tour an experience of a lifetime. The fact that I was surrounded by musicians that were all at such a high level was unlike any other. I met and talked to people in the jazz industry and created relationships that never would have been possible if I had not been performing with the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra.
