10th ANNIVERSARY HUDSON JAZZ WORKSHOP, MASTER CLASS, Pre-Concert ARTISTS' TALK + CONCERT
IN CELEBRATION OF OUR TENTH ANNIVERSARY
The Hudson Jazz Workshop is a weekend immersion in Jazz improvisation and composition, with two of today's leading practitioners of duo playing, Armen Donelian and Marc Mommaas. For ten years every summer, we have offered a supportive and focused atmosphere conducive to intensive study and mutual encouragement, through individual and group instruction, jam sessions and a faculty/student concert. Our enrollment is limited to 10 participants. Scholarship support is available. Wholesome meals are freshly prepared. This is a unique opportunity for musicians to freely convene, connect and collaborate without academic pressures or commercial distractions.
Our Special Guest in 2016 is Chris Washburne, Trombonist, Composer and Founding Director of the Louis Armstrong Jazz Performance Program at Columbia University in New York City.
