CJP/UIC Jazz Academy: in session from July 18 - 29. This two-week intensive summer music camp brings band students, ages 10-17 from CPS and all across the city to study under world-reknown musicians that are part of the UIC Jazz Faculty and Chicago Jazz Philharmonic orchestra. This year, almost 140 students have come to this practically tuition-free camp ($175 - $225 per student) to participate in master classes, ensembles, jam sessions, lectures, and also learn important life lessons that being a jazz musician can teach, such as good citizenship.
