Looking for a way to send your summer off with a musical kick? UCSD-TV is here to help. Take one listen to our Jazz Camp finale concert and your toes will be ready to tap right into the fall. Students along with accomplished musicians take to the stage to perform compositions representing the many stylistic approaches to jazz.
Don’t miss the highlights from these incredible musicians, captured by UCSD-TV.
Every summer, a group of talented musicians, ranging in age from 14 to adult, gather together to jam … with jazz, that is.
The five-day Jazz Camp at UC San Diego offers intermediate to advance level musicians a diverse, one-of-a-kind journey into the world of jazz with group courses and workshops, plus private lessons, jam sessions, and concerts. The camp’s extraordinary faculty of leading jazz improvisers and educators help to sharpen students’ performance skills and enrich their experience of jazz as a broad spectrum of options for musical expression.
But the students aren’t the only ones to benefit. UCSD-TV cameras were at this year’s Jazz Camp Finale Concert to capture highlights of the wonderful student ensembles performing standards and new compositions. Watch it on your TV tonight, August 10, at 8pm or get a jump on your jazz fix and enjoy it online now. No jazz hands, please.
