The 16th annual Jazz-MU-Tazz event for students grades 7-12 kicks off Monday, June 9, in Marshall University's Jomie Jazz Center on the Huntington campus. It will end with a finale concert Saturday, June 14, at Pullman Square Plaza.
Marshall Jazz Professor Dr. Ed Bingham said the camp offers the students a better understanding of playing jazz, particularly with improvisation. He also sees Jazz-MU-Tazz as an enrichment program for attendees.
"There's this sort of synergy that happens when you bring students from all over to one place to make music," Bingham said.
