At it's essence jazz is an improvisational genre, where every song performed is remade and performed in a unique way by the performer.
To celebrate improvisation we are holding a very special jam session, where members of the bands performing at our jazz festival can perform and collaborate in the moment with new musical friends.
This jam session is open to anyone in the community. If you'd like to play, come along!
This jam session is part of our Jazz Festival, featuring three days of live bands and jazz films.
This event is brought to you by the Office of Enrichment Programs in collaboration with Graduate Affairs and the Arts Office.
