2024 Shawano Jazz Foundation Scholarship Opportunities

 

Birch Creek

The Jazz Program offers students a unique learning experience at levels of jazz performance not found in most other jazz programs in America. Our program gives students an effective combination of experiences to help them master the fundamentals of jazz while establishing professional attributes. This includes top-flight instruction during the day, and hearing instructors perform in the Birch Creek Jazz Orchestra at night. The only difference between Jazz I and Jazz II are the dates and the faculty.

  • Jazz II: July 28 – August 10, 2024

Cost per Shawano student will not exceed $200. SJF is providing a scholarship in conjunction with a scholarship from Birch Creek for Shawano music students ages ages 13-19.
