CLASSES

Masterclasses

Our masterclasses featuring jazz masters and ensembles from around the Southwest will take place at the conclusion of each class session.  These unique classes are open to the public and take place at our location at the Los Alamos Music Academy.

Concerts

Seasonal Jazz Concerts are in conjunction with the Los Alamos Middle School Jazz Bands and take place at the historic Fuller Lodge in downtown Los Alamos.  Concerts begin at 6pm and are free to the public.

Gigs

Performing in this alternative environment provides students with a much different experience than the traditional concert.  Students are also provided with the opportunity to see and hear the pros perform after them and often the students are invited to play with the pros!  There is never a cover charge and often food for sale.  All gigs take place at UnQuarked Wine Room in Los Alamos.

"To promote jazz through performance and education in the community."
