Annual Jazz Camp at Messiah College
June 14-17, 2017
The Central Pennsylvania Friends of Jazz (CPFJ) Jazz Camp serves music students ages 12-21, of all instruments and voice and is conducted by professional jazz musician-educators. Students who seriously desire to further their musical education and, in particular, to learn about jazz improvisation, are welcome.
The camp is held around the same time as the annual Central PA Jazz Festival and will often afford campers a performance opportunity as well as the CPFJ Student Members’ discount for festival tickets. The Festival frequently schedules jazz clinics and other opportunities to meet, mingle and perhaps even jam with renowned festival musicians, tapping into one of the unique aspects of jazz education – the creation of occasions for mentoring.
Faculty members from past years include: Terrell Stafford, Tim Warfield, Kirk Reese, Steve Meashey, Jonathan Ragonese, and Jeff Stabley. Read More
