Reggie Schive Jazz Camp Kicks off June 16th at ILCC Estherville
(Estherville)-Iowa Lakes Community College is about to see an influx of jazz music students. KUOO’s Mathew Grisham has more:
Iowa Lakes Community College is ready to host their annual Reggie Schive Jazz Camp on their Estherville campus from June 16 - 20, 2019. Instrumental Music Professor Carol Ayres explains. "As of right now we have about 80 kids involved and they’re coming from all over the state of Iowa, a couple from Colorado, a couple from Minnesota. We start the camp with auditions and a theory placement test and we put them all in big bands and combos according to their ability level. Then throughout the week they’ll have big band rehearsals combo or small group rehearsals, they'll have theory lessons and improv lessons and then instrument class. Then they also throughout the week have a couple of private lessons with their instructors which is really cool because most camps don't offer private lessons or if they do they’re an extra cost.Then every evening we have a concert open to the public that the students can attend and the public can attend."
The Headliners will perform several times next week as well.
