Straight Ahead & Other Directions Jazz Camp at The Music Center
The Straight Ahead & Other Directions Jazz Camp, an adult summer camp for jazz lovers, takes place July 23-26, 2012 at the Columbia College Chicago Music Center.
The event, in it's fourth year, has grown in many ways and could now be considered a kind of humanities festival for jazz enthusiasts.
"We've extended it way beyond what it ever was … so that arts educators and anybody interested in jazz can see the connection between the music and other art forms," explained the Executive Director of the non-profit Jazz Institute of Chicago, Lauren Deutsch. The Jazz Institute is presenting the camp in conjunction with Columbia College Chicago and the Chicago Jazz Ensemble.
