The D97 Jazz Camp is still looking for students who will be in 7th-9th grades this upcoming fall that play saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass and drum set. The jazz camp is from 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. and consists of four different sessions including: big band rehearsal, jazz history/listening, jazz improvisation/theory and master classes with professional Chicago area jazz musicians. This year's masterclass teachers are Mark O'Connor (saxophones), Larry Pearce (trombones), Victor Garcia (trumpets) and Mark Maegdlin (rhythm section). The final concert will be at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 13th at the historic Fitzgerald's Night Club on Roosevelt Rd. The cost of the jazz camp is $150 which is a great deal!
