ISJAC, in collaboration with the University of South Florida School of Music, is delighted to serve as host of the revival of the “International Jazz Composers‘ Symposium,” May 18-20, 2017. An unparalleled gathering of jazz composers, musicians, scholars, students, and industry professionals from across the world; this unique forum offers attendees the opportunity to connect with fellow jazz composers as well as celebrated master artists while becoming exposed to a variety of new works, concepts, and related music industry trends. In addition, an open application and call for scores/papers will offer attendees several avenues in which to share and showcase their own work: via featured concert performance, guest artist master classes, research paper presentations, and the JCS’ unique “poster sessions.”

Taking place in the USF School of Music's impressive new facility/concert halls located just north of downtown Tampa, the Symposium offers those in attendance 2 and a half days of almost non-stop, diverse events. Located nearby major theme parks and renowned beaches, the area offers numerous recreational opportunities.
