Jazz Camp provides high school musicians with an up-close view of the jazz studies program at Ohio State.
Students will play in both a big band and jazz combo, participate in master classes with Ohio State jazz studies faculty, and enjoy sessions covering topics such as jazz history, jazz theory, jazz improvisation and a survey of the music industry. The program concludes with a grand finale concert where the big bands and combos will perform for family and friends.
This event is closed for 2022.
