SUMMER JAZZ WORKSHOP
39th Annual Summer Jazz Workshop August 10 - 16, 2014
Vermont Jazz Center is now getting prepared to offer its 39th iteration of the summer jazz workshop. This year it will be held on the beautiful campus of the Putney School in Putney, Vermont. There are still openings for several instruments and vocalists, so please contact Ginger Morawski at 802 254 9088 x2 to receive a brochure, or visit the VJC website at www.vtjazz.org. For specific questions regarding curriculum and content, email Eugene Uman directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, the VJC hosts about 40 instrumental and 20 vocal participants from around the world for a challenging, invigorating weeklong summer workshop. The program is set up so that participants can focus intensively on the music: learning opportunities include classes in theory, composition and arranging, vocal studies, ensembles, listening, master-classes and jam sessions.
The VJC summer workshop provides participants the opportunity to study in small groups with world-class faculty. Students and faculty live, study, and eat on the same campus, so there is plenty of time for interaction and personal attention. A warmth pervades the experience for all, and there is a strong feeling of community.
The atmosphere is exciting and the quality of instruction is unparalleled. Former faculty members include Sheila Jordan, Jimmie Heath, John Abercrombie, Lee Konitz, Jimmie Cobb and many other jazz masters.
