Jump for Jazz
A Day of Workshops, Demonstrations, and Performances
Jump for Jazz is a one-time music education event to take place on Saturday, January 17th, 2015, 11 am – 10 pm at the Dairy Center for the Arts, Boulder, Colorado. It will includefree concurrent educational sessions during the day and a ticketed evening jazz concert.
The purpose of this event is to educate the public in general and youth in particular about the many varieties of jazz and how each is created and performed. We will be publicizing locally and reaching out in particular to the youth population in our efforts.
The Jump for Jazz Organizing Committee plans to use all three theaters at the Dairy, and offer three concurrent hour-long workshops throughout the day, each focusing on a different type of jazz. Each session will have several musicians who explain how their genre of jazz is created and executed.
The day will start at 11 am and end at 10 pm. The final event of the day will be a concert in the performance space, exhibiting each of the genres that were offered in the daytime sessions and maybe a crossover of all of them. Whereas the daytime workshop sessions will be free, the evening concert starting at 7pm will be a ticketed event. The Dairy Center for the Arts is working with us to make the performance areas conducive to our requirements.
