Exploring the Artistic Process

On April 21 from noon-8:00 p.m., the Jazz Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events will present Jazz Education Day: The Artistic Process; an opportunity to learn about jazz, improve performance skills and connect with other music lovers. Held during Jazz Appreciation Month and created to encourage a deeper appreciation of America’s music, all sessions will be held at the Chicago Cultural Center located at 78 E. Washington and are free and open to the public.

 

“In recent years at the Chicago Jazz Festival, our committee has provided small samplings of the work that goes into the creation of jazz music with a program calledWhat is This Thing Called Jazz?,” explained Jazz Institute of Chicago Education Committee Chair, Judith E. Stein. “This year, to observe Jazz Appreciation Month and to celebrate jazz educators, we are expanding our abbreviated sessions into a full day that has something for everyone, from musicians and aspiring performers to jazz lovers and the curious. The concept behind the ‘Artistic Process’ is to provide a glimpse into the creative minds of musicians and to develop increased understanding and insight into the music and the artists who create it.”

 

Sessions Include:

  • An exploration of the rehearsal process with educator and performer Victor Goines,
  • A free ensemble workshop with top musicians Miguel de la Cerna, Marlene Rosenberg, Ernie Adams and Geof Bradfield,
  • A panel discussion on jazz education with Paul Wertico, Bobby Wilsyn and,Roosevelt Griffin moderated by Richard Steele, and
  • A jam session led by Jarrard Harris.
