The Jazz Camp at Newport

July 30 to Aug. 4, 2023

The Jazz Camp at Newport is an exciting opportunity for high school students to learn from experienced music educators and discover the depths of their talent.

This year's camp will include performance master classes focusing on jazz theory and improvisation, small ensembles and big band, culminating in a final recording project. Students will receive a ticket to the Newport Jazz Festival at Fort Adams State Park, and will also have the opportunity for a meet-and-greet or master class with a Newport Jazz Festival artist. Please note: Festival admission will be dependent on format and availability.
