About the Artist

The RSMI Program for Jazz is a one-week intensive musical oasis, focused on composition and small-group collaboration. From the moment they arrive, 15 fellows—each specially invited by co-directors Billy Childs, Rufus Reid, and Steve Wilson—spend their days rehearsing in different combos, workshopping pieces with the illustrious faculty trio of composer-bandleaders, and learning how to adapt to performing with ever-changing personnel.


After a week of close mentoring by living legends Billy Childs, Rufus Reid, and Steve Wilson, tonight three jazz quintets lay down 15 original compositions they’ve written and workshopped just for this unique concert.
