The two-week jazz composition residency program – for which there is no tuition or application fee – includes daily workshops, private lessons, group lessons, master classes and rehearsals with established jazz artists.  Semi-public concerts, which will help participants improve their performance skills, will be held at various venues during the residency. A final concert will be performed at the recently renovated historic Queen Theater in downtown Wilmington, Delaware.

The Light Up The Queen Foundation will provide participants with a per diem to cover meal expenses. Participants will be provided with housing at one of the Delaware College of Art and Design’s student residences. Transportation to and from Wilmington, DE will be the responsibility of the residency participant. There is no application fee or tuition.
