The Music Institute of Chicago celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Jazz Studies program with a world premiere commission by jazz saxophonist and clarinetist Victor Goines. The concert will showcase many of the acclaimed musicians a part of the jazz faculty. The concert will also be available via livestream.
“Jazz is perhaps America’s greatest gift to the world,” said Music Institute President and CEO Mark George. “We are honored to pass along the traditions of this art form to new generations. For the past decade, our faculty has done that very well, and that is something to celebrate.”
The Music Institute’s Jazz Studies program provides opportunities for students of all ages and levels to explore jazz through private instruction, combos, and improvisation classes. The faculty includes some of Chicago's most respected jazz musicians as they bring their deep knowledge of jazz history and the current scene into every class and lesson.
