Jazz at Dartington International Summer School & Festival 2018
The festival features a whole week (18 – 25 August) dedicated to Jazz, Ragtime and Composition which will be rich with opportunities for musicians at all levels the chance to explore new ideas and develop their skills and repertoire alongside like-minded musicians. Courses run for the entire week so you are able to immerse yourself from breakfast until late – or break it by exploring the estate or a walk on the moor before enjoying the concerts programme in the evening.
The brilliant trumpeter and bandleader, Byron Wallen leads this year’s open jazz ensemble and showcases the remarkable performing, composing and teaching skills that make him a leading figure among creative jazz musicians today. Wallen is supported by a diverse band of jazz tutors, including Mark Lockheart, Eric Vloeimans, Martin France and Steve Lodder, who will facilitate participants in a range of playing styles, from Big Band through to two piece Improv, and much more in between.
There will be ensemble sessions on the rhythms of the Harlem Renaissance, improvisation classes with one of the UK’s truly independent spirits, Huw Warren, and an exploration of songs of the Jazz age for singers. Residential packages are available to book now and more details about the individual courses and sessions can be found on our website.
