The 35th Annual Jazz in July Summer Music Program runs July 10-21, 2017.
The renowned jazz education, performance, and improvisation program is held each year at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Jazz in July is a summer intensive workshop examining the technique, history, and culture of jazz. Jazz legends such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Sheila Jordan, and Max Roach helped develop Jazz in July’s strong foundation in the traditions of jazz. Jazz in July faculty spend these two weeks working with students, helping them to hone their skills as jazz musicians. But Thursday night is their time to shine, showing their chops as prominent jazz musicians!
