Aim Higher


Jazz Week at Wayne

Type: Ages: 14 to 18

This initiative has evolved and redefines the summer jazz camp concept. With 40 high school students being chosen through competitive audition, and no students burdened with a tuition fee, the program brings together a highly diverse collection of talented youth from urban, rural, and suburban settings. The program has enjoyed 100% attendance every year, significant numbers of returning students, and a reputation for excellence throughout the Southeast Michigan area. The positive impact of the JazzWeek@Wayne collaboration is evidenced by high success rate and scholarship offers to participants who chose to continue their jazz education at the university level. This year, the program includes a Wednesday, July 26 performance at Cliff Bells (a national artist with Detroit Jazz All-Stars and student jam session) and a Friday, July 28 Student Showcase.

Date: Monday July 24th, 2017 to Friday July 28th, 2017
