|Stanford Jazz Festival||Music|
For nearly four decades, Stanford Jazz Workshop (SJW) has been bringing the best jazz performers and educators together with students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds, in two summer programs: the Stanford Jazz Festival, and the Stanford Jazz Camp and Jazz Residency.
During the day, these same artists mingle with the students at Jazz Camp and Residency to pass on their experience, techniques, and artistic vision. Many emerging jazz stars are past participants of SJW programs, including Joshua Redman, Larry Grenadier, Bill Stewart, Sasha Dobson, Taylor Eigsti, and Jenny Scheinman.
Founded in 1972, Stanford Jazz Workshop is a nonprofit organization dedicated to jazz education and appreciation.SJW's programs provide an exceptional immersion in jazz, fostering a deeper appreciation of this great improvisational music genre, hailed by many as "the definitive American art form."
Festival has a children/youth component.
