Southern Wesleyan University will be hosting its 20th annual SWU Summer Jazz experience June 11 - 15! 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. Participants will develop improvisational and theoretical skills, explore songwriting, and participate in daily master classes and "jam sessions" with the clinicians.

Activities such as beach volleyball and basketball will be offered in the free time. All-you-can-eat meals and air conditioned residence halls round out a great facility that will provide the ideal setting for this unique and fun Jazz combo/improvisation camp. Sign up today!
