From July 22-26, OMC is presenting the sixth annual OMC Summer Jazz intensive that has grown and matured in its short life span. Over the course of five days the program allows students and faculty to immerse themselves in music and focus on personal growth and working with others. Everything is hands on with listening/discussion times and but also chances for breaks and practice. Students will find teachers open and encouraging, providing good advice for future endeavors, from the struggling amateur to the budding professional or serious college student.
Days will be divided into theory/improvisation, ensemble, listening classes with open jams in the evening culminating in a joint student and faculty concerts. This year the classes will start in the evening (Wednesday-Friday at 5pm) to allow for day time conflicts, with all day happenings on the weekend, finishing up on Sunday afternoon.
Open to all instruments and vocalists of all abilities. This year the faculty includes Berklee College of Music professor Mitch Seidman on guitar, UMass Amherst Jazz Vocal teacher Cathy Jenson-Hole (Saturday only), and returning faculty Claire Arenius (Amherst College) on drums, Carl Clements (Amherst College) on Sax and Jamie MacDonald on bass. Youth prices start at $325 and adult $425 with discounts/scholarships available. Saturday Audit is available for vocalists.
