Our Most Memorable Performances Are Yours - Support Jefferson Center

Jazz Institute Begins!

Mon, Jun 15, 2015

Jazz Institute, Jefferson Center's comprehensive camp to teach students about America's art form, jazz, kicked off today.

Throughout the week, students will participate in a program which culminates in a series of final performances and recordings inside Music Lab at Jefferson Center.

Jazz Institute is affordably priced to ensure local teen musicians have every opportunity to attend.

Jazz Institute also takes the opportunity to create a scholarship fund in honor of the great jazz pianist, Don Pullen. Our goal is to celebrate the amazing creativity of Roanoke's own jazz master, while supporting a young musician on their path to exploring the world of jazz through quality education and engaging opportunities.

On Tuesday June 16th at Blue 5 Restaurant www.blue5restaurant.com the Chad Eby Quartet will perform starting at 8:00 PM. This is a great opportunity to hear the faculty musicians perform live and students may have the opportunity to jam with the faculty as well. This has traditionally been a great night in Roanoke, where students, parents and the faculty of Jefferson Center’s Jazz Institute can enjoy great music in a relaxed environment after a full day of jazz instruction.
