About > Vision & Mission

OUR VISION…  is to become a jazz residency that is known for encouraging and nurturing the next generation of jazz performers and preparing them for a life-long journey of self-discovery and self-exploration.

We strive to ensure jazz’s continued evolution by striving to help each participant find their unique sound.

OUR MISSION…  is to introduce a select group of young Jazz students (ages 17-25) to an intense two-week residency focused on performing, composing/arranging and improvisation.

Lessons learned, pieces written, and skills gained in classes and workshops will be applied in several semi-public performances throughout the residency, and a final public concert of student works at the historic Queen Theatre in Wilmington, Delaware.
