2020 Women's Jazz & Blues Camp Registration & Info
       Unfortunately, the 2020 Women's Jazz & Blues Camp is cancelled, as the Jazzschool is closed at least until the end of March 2020. Nobody at the school has tested positive for coronavirus, but this preemptive decision has been made by Susan Muscarella, Jazzschool founder and president, to secure the well-being of all.
      If we are able to reschedule the camp, we will let all campers know via email and you will see that here. Otherwise, we look forward to the next camp in March, 2021.
      Here's to everyone's continued health!
Jean Fineberg, Director
