Jazz in July 2020 ONLINE! 

July 20 - 24, 2020. Registration opens June 25th.

In March 2020 our lives were forever changed by the emergence of the novel Covid-19 virus. The University of Massachusetts campus remains closed this summer, in keeping with state guidelines and concerns about the safety and well-being of our community.

But we carry on! Jazz in July will be up and running in an online format this summer.

Jazz in July 2020 Online...

is one week of afternoon workshops on jazz improvisation, harmony and rhythm, instrumental/vocal master classes, and featured lectures, all with world-class jazz artists/educators. We will be using the Zoom platform, so you can participate from the comfort of your own practice space.
