2020 SUMMER JAZZ CAMP
August 16 - 21
U-JAM (Universal Jazz Advocates and Mentors) Society is pleased to announce our 2020 Jazz Camp - one designed to help musicians connect in the new reality of a pandemic.
With the current restrictions on gathering, this year's camp will be available virtually and live! Campers will have the option of participating from anywhere on the planet with internet to access our classes and perform and practice with our all-star faculty. Master Classes and special topic classes with an impressive list of special guests as well as virtual combos too.
We are especially grateful to Arts on View and the Neuweiller family who have made available Hermann's Jazz Club for us this year. We will be utilizing not only the jazz club downstairs, but also the upstairs areas. This will allow us to run afternoon ensemble rehearsals, jam sessions, concerts, and masterclasses in a live format with a live feed for our virutal campers.
