A series of evening concerts by Jazz Camp faculty and students will be presented during Maine Jazz Camp at 8 p.m. from July 9-13, in the Emery Performance Space on the campus of the University of Maine at Farmington.

Since 1979 the Maine Jazz Camp has been introducing jazz to student musicians from all over Maine and beyond. The camp runs week-long sessions for high school and middle school students, however, college students and adults are most welcome. Each week over 50 students participate in an atmosphere of campus living and jazz music, quickly assimilating its program of ensemble playing, improvisation and theory.

Several Maine Jazz Camp faculty, past and present, have been the recipients of important international jazz awards. For more information, visit mainejazzcamp.com/faculty.
