SWU Summer Jazz Experience
Southern Wesleyan University will be hosting its 14th annual SWU Summer Jazz experience June 17 – 21.
Incredible clinicians and a great setting make the camp a friendly, fulfilling and fast-paced three days. An in-studio recording session, live “club” performances, and great concerts by the clinicians allow students to become very involved in all aspects of the jazz combo. Improvisational and theoretical skills will be developed, songwriting skills will be explored, and clinicians will direct daily masters classes and “jam-sessions.” Activities such as beach volleyball and basketball will be offered in the free time. All you can eat meals and air conditioned dorms round out a great facility that will provide the ideal setting.
Clinicians featured this year will be Pat Harbison (trumpet), Rick Simerly (trombone), Chris Baker (drums), Doug Norwine, (saxophone), Ashley Summers-Baker (bass), Eric Barnhart (piano) and Bruce Helgeson (guitar).
