Jazz in July Week 1 "Club Jazz in July"
July 11, 2018
Room: Marriott Center
UMass Amherst Campus
In its 37th year, Annual Jazz in July Summer Music Programs runs July 9 through 20. The renowned jazz education, performance, and improvisation program is held each year at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Jazz in July is a summer-intensive workshop examining the technique, history, and culture of jazz. Jazz legends such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Sheila Jordan, and Max Roach helped develop Jazz in July’s strong foundation in the traditions of jazz.
Jazz in July is a program of the UMass Fine Arts Center, sponsored in cooperation with the UMass Department of Music & Dance and the UMass College of Humanities and Fine Arts. Instrumental Ensemble and Vocal Soloists programs offer students the chance to study with professional world-class faculty. The rigorous training includes instrument/vocal master classes, group clinics, jazz theory and improvisation training, ensemble coaching, jam sessions, combined lectures, and public performances by participants.
Here we present our student combos and vocalists in a relaxed, club environment. This event takes place in the Marriott Center, 11th floor of the Campus Center complex at the University of Massachusetts. Light refreshments and cash bar. Suggested donation is $10.
