Vermont Jazz Center continues to offer an exciting array of in-person and online classes and has a wide selection of ensembles for all interested musicians. On February 13th, 2022 the VJC will launch its Winter-Spring educational programs. This season’s offerings are a hybrid of in-person and online opportunities that make good use of the Jazz Center’s remarkable summer faculty who can Zoom in from afar, as well as local instructors. For those able to commute to Brattleboro, VJC is once again hosting onsite ensembles and Jam Sessions at their Cotton Mill venue. The Jazz Center has outlined Covid protocols that are above and beyond those required by the state of Vermont and the CDC. All attendees will be vaccinated, wear masks when not playing an instrument, and follow responsible distancing. https://vtjazz.org/2021-safety-protocols-for-in-person-activities/ The following ensembles will hold in-person sessions: Guitar Ensembles, levels 1 and 2, Latin Jazz Ensemble, Youth Jazz Ensemble, portions of the Soubrette Jazz Choir, Blue Note Ensemble (levels 1 and 2), and Samba Percussion Ensemble. Online offerings include: Singing the Standards with Jay Clayton, Interpreting Jazz Ballads on Guitar with Freddie Bryant, Jazz and Spirituality with Claire Arenius, and Zoom Tunes with Malik McLaurine, Franz Robert and Ben Barnett. Anna Patton’s Soubrette Jazz Choir will begin with a 5 week online course starting on Feb. 8th and move to an in-person format on March 15th if conditions permit (see below for more information). In-person Jam Sessions are now ongoing and the VJC welcomes musicians of all ages and abilities to attend. Join a class at the Vermont Jazz Center. The Winter-Spring semester will run for 10 weeks, from February 13th until the beginning of May. The program will culminate in a concert where all in-person ensembles will perform. The fee for most classes is $250 with the exception of Latin Jazz, and Blue Note I ($200), Samba and Youth Jazz ($100) and Zoom Tunes ($15 per session). No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. To register, please contact Ginger Morawski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
