Summer Jazz Workshop 2022
Our 4th annual Summer Jazz Workshop wrapped up in August with a great group of musicians honing their skills in improvising and playing. The Salvation Army's Victoria Citadel was a fabulous and gracious host, sharing their air-conditioned facilities and treating us to daily gourmet lunches and snacks.
There were many special moments during the week including evening performances by our vocal mentor, Gergana Velinova, saxman Ryan Oliver, and the Vancouver Island Repertory Jazz Orchestra followed by jam sessions with the students. We wrapped up the week with a concert featuring our student combos.
A very special thanks to all, including our talented faculty including Louis Rudner, Ashley Wey, Joe Hatherill John Lee, Gergana Velinova, Joey Smith, Damian Graham, and Dave Flello. Our administration and volunteers ensured a smooth operation through the week and were invaluable.
Plans are underway for a repeat performance in the summer of 2023!
