SXU hosts annual Summer Jazz Camp


Saint Xavier University (SXU) is excited to host its Third Annual SXU-Southside Summer Jazz Camp this summer. Tuition for the camp is $75 per student and includes evening snacks and a t-shirt. This camp will run July 16 - 20 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. each day.

SXU-Southside Summer Jazz Camp
The camp is open to students in grades six through twelve and provides students with the opportunity to learn from and work with an outstanding group of jazz educators who are dedicated to helping them gain their confidence and improve on their abilities as section players, improvisers and sight-readers. The camp is open to students of all levels of experience regardless of whether they are new to jazz or looking to expand their horizons. The camp includes daily rehearsals on jazz repertoire, instrumental sectionals, improvisation master-classes, jam sessions, guest concerts and music theory workshops. Students will showcase their talents on the final concert on that Friday evening in McGuire Hall of SXU's Chicago campus.

The SXU-Southside Summer Jazz Camp welcomes students of all instruments, including trumpet, trombone, saxophone, piano, string bass, guitar, vibraphone and drums.
