Congrats to the Boston Arts Academy jazz quintet, who performed with jazz singer Matt Dusk at the Lang Lang & Friends Annual Gala at the United Nations Headquarters on October 24th in New York City!

The Gala was part of the 2014 United Nations Day, which celebrated the 69th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. The event featured performances by Lang Lang and Sting, with Alec Baldwin as Master of Ceremonies.

The Gala was organized by the Lang Lang International Music Foundation (LLIMF), which has partnered with BAA to increase access for Boston Public Schools students to the foundations of music through a sequential piano instruction program.
