March 18 – 19, 2016
This year the Festival will feature performance and clinic sessions, workshops and interactive sessions on topics such as improvisation, jazz styles, creating a bass line, developing big ears and drum set techniques, as well as opportunities to listen to, talk with, and even jam with professional jazz artists. The schedule is designed to ensure that all participants have a great experience, whether your group is able to come for one day or for the entire Festival.
A large highlight to the Festival will be the chance to hear and hang out with Grammy award winners, saxophonist BENNY GOLSON, and trumpeter BRIAN LYNCH. Both will perform with the Conservatory’s renowned jazz sextet, WE SIX, Friday evening, March 18 at Weasler Auditorium. And all of these great jazz educators will be active in the entire festival.
Day passes are available for $15. Contact us with any questions by calling Adam Shafer, WCM Jazz Festival Manager at 414-276-5760 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
