  Hosted by Messiah College's Music Department Chairman, Dr. William Stowman, the 17th annual  resident/commuter Central PA Jazz Camp is for students aged 10 to 21.  The camp is 4 DAYS/3 NIGHTS  and features a major concert on Friday evening with our guest artist/educator Rodney Whitaker's Quartet performing featuring Tim Warfield, Paul Bratcher and Philadelphia drummer Byron Landham

There is no audition required to attend the camp, just a desire to learn the art of improvisation. Students of all instruments and voices are welcomed.  Classes, performances and rehearsals will be held in the new High Center at Messiah College and feature studies in jazz history, master classes, theory, jam sessions, ear training, and much more!  

We are very pleased to have the internationally acclaimed bassist Rodney Whitaker joining the faculty this year and are looking forward to having our sixth Camp in the beautiful High Center at Messiah College.
