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 July 19 in McGuire Hall of the Warde Academic Center.

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