The 2017 Jazz Composers’ Symposium will bring jazz composers and arrangers of all backgrounds together to the University of South Florida campus to learn, discover, and share in a vibrant and interactive environment. This year’s event will feature new music reading sessions, panel discussions, research presentations, and musical performances by John Hollenbeck’s Claudia Quintet, the Billy Childs Quartet, and Chuck Owen & the Jazz Surge.
Artists discuss the creative process and share their upcoming projects. Join Omar Thomas as he discusses all things composition with your favorite jazz composers and arrangers. New video interviews will be posted every other month and archived for future reference.
