The Central PA Jazz Camp – 18th Annual – June 12-15, 2019 Messiah College, Mechanicsburg PA
Hosted by Messiah College’s Music Department Chairman, Dr. William Stowman, the 18th annual resident/commuter Central PA Jazz Camp is for students aged 11 to 21. The camp is 4 DAYS/3 NIGHTS and features a major concert on Friday evening with our guest artist/educator Sean Jones performing.
There is no audition required to attend the camp, just a desire to learn the art of improvisation. Students of all instruments and voices are welcomed. Classes, performances and rehearsals will be held in the High Center at Messiah College and feature studies in jazz history, master classes for all instruments, music theory, evening jam sessions, ear training, and much more!
We are very pleased to have the internationally acclaimed trumpeter and head of the Jazz Department at Peabody Conservatory, Sean Jones joining the faculty this year and are looking forward to having our seventh Camp in the beautiful High Center at Messiah College. Artist/educators Tim Warfield, Kirk Reese, Paul Bratcher, Gavin Horning and Steve Varner will also be teaching at this year’s Camp.
