Lenora will be the vocal jazz instructor, joining an all-star jazz faculty for two weeks in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
Brevard Jazz Camp is one of the most popular in the country, and is under the direction of Michael Dease. Here is a short description:
The program will enroll up to 70 students, ages 14 to 29, who will participate in big band / combo classes and performances, private lessons, recording sessions, and mentoring opportunities with world renowned faculty and guest artists.
Our all-star faculty are some of the busiest working professionals in the music industry and their talent is equaled in their teaching ability. They are here for you – our students. The great Dizzy Gillespie once said, "I always try to teach by example and not force my ideas on a young musician. One of the reasons we're here is to be a part of this process of exchange."
Days are packed with events including big band, quintets – sextets – septets – octets, professional recording sessions, masterclasses with guest artists, private lessons, jazz history, jazz theory, jam sessions, outreach concerts, and performances at the Brevard Music Center. Topics of study reach across the entire music industry and provide insight to playing all styles of music. There is something for everyone at every step of the way. Time off in the schedule allows for hiking, rafting, tubing, cook-outs, and exploring the scenic forests and waterfalls of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Application deadline: March 4, 2019. Applications will remain open until enrollment is complete.
