Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues wanted to extend students learning about Jazz through the summer and began the JazzFest Jazz Camp in 2011. In its 9th year, JazzFest Jazz Camp continues to grow in fun and popularity.
At camp, students get to learn from incredible instructors and a guest artist through a variety of offerings. Camp class offerings include Jazz improvisation, Jazz Theory, History of Jazz, Combo Rehearsal, Big Band Rehearsal, Lessons, Concerts, Master Classes, Evening concerts with faculty, guests, and students. In addition to learning and growing their passion for music, this camp captures everything students should enjoy in the summer – fun-filled, build new friendships, and life-long memories!
A huge highlight of the camp is performing on stage at JazzFest! The top camp band will perform on the Main Stage at JazzFest. JazzFest is the biggest jazz and blues festival in the upper Midwest! Featuring past performances by Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, the Neville Brothers, Dr. John, Little Feat, Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, North Mississippi Allstars, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Bettye LaVette, Tower of Power, Taj Mahal, Mavis Staples, and much more.
