ISU creative jazz academy scheduled
The Idaho State University Creative Jazz Academy is slated for June 17-21.
Jonathan Armstrong, ISU’s Director of Jazz Studies, will be directing the academy large ensemble, featuring all student and teacher participants.
The small ensembles will give participants the opportunity to play in a dynamic creative jazz ensemble, where they can contribute original ideas and melodies. These small groups will be led by select outstanding ISU jazz students, who will bring their fresh creative concepts to the group.
Each day the academy will be graced with a different guest artist, who will play in the rehearsals all day while offering their opinions and observations. Then, in the afternoon, each guest artist will lead the academy in a different special topics session.
