UNC Summer Jazz Workshop Concerts
The UNC Summer Jazz Workshop is a unique five-day jazz program (June 26 through June 30, with a final student concert on Friday, June 30, 2023 at 3:00pm) catering to students of a variety of ages—from middle school (rising 8th grade) and high school students, to college students and adults who want to study and be immersed in a high-paced jazz program which provides instruction in jazz theory, improvisation, small group playing, and group lessons. Each evening, Monday through Thursday, guest artists and faculty will perform concerts at 7:00pm that are free open to the public. (Locations to come)
There are three ways for students to participate in the UNC SJW workshop:
- As a performer in the Community Summer Jazz Workshop: Students in the Community SJW have separate music theory and jazz improvisation courses in the morning and early afternoon, and they join together with other students to perform in jazz combos and participate in group lessons later in the afternoon.
- As a performer in the Summer Jazz Workshop: This portion of the workshop is available to rising high school seniors, college students, and adults. Students study jazz theory and jazz improvisation during the morning hours, and they join together with the Community SJW students to perform in jazz combos and participate in group lessons in the afternoon.
- As a student in the Jazz History/Music Journalism Through Social Media course: These students will study jazz history and learn basic music skills, as well as music journalism using social media.
Each evening, Monday through Thursday, guest artists and faculty will perform at 7:00pm. All concerts are free and open to the public. On Friday, June 30 from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, the student combos will perform in the final concert. We hope to see you there!
