Composers’ Symposium-
In addition to the regular program of combos, workshops, master classes and concerts over three days, JazzWorks offers an extended two-day pre-workshop session in two versions:

The composer’s symposium is devoted to individual and small group instruction in composition and arranging. Participants will have the opportunity to develop and refine their original compositions under the mentorship of JazzWorks faculty members and learn more about composing music in the process. Original compositions will be debuted at the workshop’s final Sunday concert.

Alternatively, a two-day private practise option is offered for those who wish to come early to develop their skills and get their chops in shape for the regular camp workshop.
