This jazz clinic and jazz fest event has two components:
1. Attend a 90-minute jazz clinic with CCPA's amazing jazz faculty! Students will have the opportunity to discuss and work on audition material for college, IMEA, or other upcoming performances or auditions. If attending the clinic, please bring your own instrument (drummers, please bring your own sticks and cymbals). Piano, amps, and PA will be provided.
Lunch will be available in Roosevelt University's Wabash cafeteria for participants and clinicians. After lunch, students will head over to Jazz Showcase (806 S. Plymouth, a few blocks SW of RU) for an afternoon of performances from all of CCPA’s jazz ensembles.
2. Attend CCPA Jazz Fest, the end of semester performance by CCPA combos at Jazz Showcase, CCPA's performance venue for jazz! There are 3 slots for non-CCPA combos to perform at the Showcase for up to 10 minutes. Head of Jazz, Prof. Scott Mason will evaluate each submission and determine which combos will perform on Dec. 9. For consideration as a performance group, submit one audio or video recording of your combo to Scott Mason at email@example.com on or before November 10, 2017.
All participants must register through Eventbrite for this free event.
