Who should attend the Big Band Intensive Workshop?

This workshop is designed for experienced players looking for concentrated experience playing in a big band. You may be a player whose primary connection to jazz is through big band playing, and you’re looking for a way to improve your chops as a soloist. Or you may be someone who plays mostly in small groups, and who would like to be in the middle of the incredible intensity a big band can create. Either way, you’ll be in a band with 17 other musicians playing great jazz.

We’ll have just one band this year, and will be accepting only enough players to fill it. Be sure to get your application and audition as soon as you can for the best chance of acceptance.
