Since 1998, the week-long Lafayette Summer Music Workshop provides an intimate and inspiring environment for learning and playing jazz. Master classes, improvisation workshops and jazz combos are led by some of the preeminent professional musicians in the field. The workshop is directed by Stanley Middle School music director Bob Athayde and jazz curriculum director Kyle Athayde. Kids – middle school, high school and college age – as well as adults have a blast!
The 2017 Workshop runs from July 30 to August 4. Auditions are on Sunday, July 30, and the workshop itself is Monday, July 31, to Friday, August 4.
