3-Day Big Band Mini

The Big Band Mini-Workshop aims to deepen your knowledge of large jazz ensemble performance during a concentrated time frame.  John La Barbera – internationally respected jazz composer, arranger and director – has constructed a program that will provide participants an intensive performance experience, exploring numerous styles – traditional to contemporary. An ideal workshop is not only for educators looking to hone their skills, but also for those who love participating in big band section playing.

Admission will be limited in order to ensure balanced instrumentation for maximum experience.

3-Day Big Band Mini-Workshop & Week-Long Workshop Combination

You may attend the 3-Day Big Band Mini-Workshop AND the Week-long Workshop at the University of Louisville consecutively … Get this unique Vocal experience followed immediately by a week of intensive, hands-on instruction with our All-Star faculty!

The 3-Day Big Band Mini-Workshop is Friday (4pm) thru Sunday (9pm).

These two programs are separate, and you may attend either one and benefit greatly without attending both – but when combined they make for a powerful 8 days of jazz instruction.

Arriving For The Dual-Workshop Extravaganza

If you attend BOTH the 3-Day Big Band Mini-Workshop and the Week-long workshop, you must be at University of Louisville School of Music no later than 4pm on Friday. The 3-Day Big Band Mini-Workshop begins at 4pm on Friday.

3-Day Brazilian/Latin Music Mini-Workshop & Week-Long Workshop and 3-Day Big Band Workshop Trifecta

You may attend the 3-Day Brazilian/Latin Music Mini-Workshop AND the Week-long Workshop AND the 3-Day Big Band Workshop at the University of Louisville consecutively!

These three programs are separate, and you may attend any one of them and benefit greatly without attending all three – but when combined they make for a powerful 10 days of jazz instruction.

Arriving For The Triple-Workshop Extravaganza

If you attend the 3-Day Brazilian/Latin Music Mini-Workshop and the Week-Long Workshop and the 3-Day Big Band Mini-Workshop, you must be at University of Louisville School of Music no later than 3pm on Friday.
