Capital University's Conservatory of Music will present the 20th annual Jazz & World Music Festival from March 30-April 15, 2014. This event features music student, faculty and guest ensemble concerts, both on campus and in the community, and world-class jazz artists in clinics, workshops, and in concert throughout the period. All events are free and open to the public unless marked otherwise.
In addition, one day is earmarked for the Jazz Ensemble Invitational (Friday, April 4, 2014) which brings together middle and high school, collegiate and community jazz ensembles from within a multi-state region for a friendly non-competitive atmosphere in an educationally emphasized setting. Adjudication is delivered by judges recognized globally each year. The event is an endorsed event of the Jazz Education Network.
This year’s Invitational features Jack Wilkin’s Blue & Green Project, a multimedia concert presentation, with projected images of the inspirational elements for many of the compositions being featured. A juxtaposition of true Americana, these new works are influenced by Blue Ridge Mountain arts and culture (including mountain artists, craftsmen, culture, history and scenery).
