Ravinia's Steans Music Institute
Program for Jazz
The Program for Jazz exists to promote the art of small ensemble improvisation. Although part of the program focuses on performing a well-rehearsed concert, most of the days are spent rehearsing with a variety of individuals, learning how to perform well with changing personnel. Participation in the Program for Jazz is by invitation only.
Program dates: June 14 to 20, 2014
Participants in Ravinia's Steans Music Institute’s Progam for Jazz present one or more concerts of original compositions each summer as the culmination of their week of study and performance.
