 Hosted by Messiah College's Music Department Chairman, Dr. William Stowman, the 16th annual  resident/commuter Central PA Jazz Camp is for students aged 10 to 21.  The camp is 4 DAYS/3 NIGHTS  and features a major concert on Friday evening with our guest educator Ben Wolfe's Trio performing a tribute to Thelonious Monk

There is no audition required to attend the camp, just a desire to learn the art of improvisation. Students of all instruments and voices are welcomed.  Classes, performances and rehearsals will be held in the new High Center at Messiah College and feature studies in jazz history, master classes, theory, jam sessions, ear training, and much more!  

We are very pleased to have the internationally acclaimed bassist Ben Wolfe joining the faculty this year and are looking forward to having our fifth Camp in the beautiful High Center at Messiah College.
