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.
This concert is the culmination of all the hard work of the week! Student combos and vocalists perform their best for the day, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Bezanson Recital Hall. Come see the future of jazz! Suggested donation is $10.
Bezanson Recital Hall is located within the Fine Arts Center. https://fac.umass.edu/Online/default.asp?doWork::WScontent::loadArticle=...
