South Delta Jazz Workshop

Come Join Us!

Our in-person combo rehearsals will be in large spaces that will allow for adequate social distancing and room to rehearse. The workshop will take place at the Red Barn at Southlands and other nearby spaces that are large enough to accommodate this.


Each day in early afternoon combo participants will take part in a masterclass that will examine a particular jazz style or jazz improv concept that will be explored with the group in detail.

In Person Combo Classes

Each combo will rehearse in-person with coaching from one of our faculty over 8 two-hour sessions in total, as per their individual combo schedule.

Festival Concerts

Workshop participants will have admission to festival concerts held during the Festival weeks..
