 Hosted by Messiah College's Music Department Chairman, Dr. William Stowman, the 13th annual three day resident/commuter Central PA Jazz Camp is for students aged 10 to 21.  There is no audition required, just a desire to learn the art of improvisation.  Classes, performances and rehearsals will be held in the new High Center at Messiah College and feature studies in jazz history, master classes, theory, composition, arranging, jam sessions, ear training, and much more!  

We are very pleased to have the brilliant pianist Helen Sung, trumpeter Tim Thompson, & saxophonist Jonathan Ragonese on the faculty this year and are looking forward to having our third Camp in the beautiful High Center at Messiah College.
