Jazz for Adults 2018
In an effort to bring jazz culture and creative performance opportunities to an underserved population in Waterloo Region, Jazz for Adults is a initiative directed toward the adult. Now in its third year, Jazz for Adults is programmed for July 16-20, 2018, coinciding with the Uptown Waterloo Jazz Festival weekend (July 20-July 22). Have you always wanted to learn jazz but thought it was too late? Are you classically trained but interested in entering the jazz world? Are you a total beginner looking to explore jazzy musical horizons? This program is for you!
Join Mary-Catherine Pazzano, local jazz singer, Don Buchanan, and other talented jazz mentors in a week-long jazz day camp geared toward adult singers/instrumentalists. You will learn about jazz style, performance, and technique within a combo setting. Musicians and students of all musical levels are welcome! Whether you have a background in playing or singing jazz, and are looking to expand your skills, or whether you have no background in jazz at all, Mary-Catherine and her team will ensure you have the tools necessary to be successful! Rehearse and learn from Monday-Friday, and then showcase your talents with an audience on the afternoon of Saturday, July 21 at The Jazz Room.
