Sponsored by Salve Regina, the University of Rhode Island and West Virginia University, the Jazz Camp at Newport is an exciting opportunity for students ages 14-18 to meet new people, learn from experienced music professors and discover the depths of their talent during a weeklong series of classes, rehearsals and more.

The camp will feature daily jazz combo and big band rehearsals, master classes, jam sessions, theory courses and sightseeing in historic Newport, Rhode Island. Students will receive a ticket to the Newport Jazz Festival, and will also have the opportunity for a meet-and-greet with a Newport Jazz Festival artist.
