    Southern Wesleyan University’s 18th annual Summer Jazz Experience will include live performance experiences, along with a recording session and opportunities to learn from incredible clinicians in a great setting. SWU’s Summer Jazz Experience will take place June 12-16.

    This June, Southern Wesleyan University will host the 18th annual SWU Summer Jazz Experience at Central.

    Incredible clinicians in a great setting make the camp a friendly yet 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 and songwriting skills will be explored. Also, master classes and clinician run "jam sessions” will take place daily.

    2018 Featured Clinicians will include Andy Preston (bass), Michael D’Angelo (drums), Colin Campbell (piano), Doug Norwine and Chris Mitchell (saxophone), Rick Simerly (trombone), Bo Clayton (trumpet) and a guitar clinician to be announced.
