Summer Youth Ensembles

youth-ensemble2

This Summer, we are pleased to offer numerous high school and middle school jazz ensembles. These groups will each meet twice a week, for 3 weeks. To allow for flexible summer scheduling, we’re offering sessions that run for 3 weeks in July and 3 weeks in August. It is possible to sign up for either July (Session I) or August (Session II), or for both sessions, back to back. Each 3-week session will conclude with a student performance in Hardymon Hall at the California Jazz Conservatory.
