GREETINGS SUMMER JAZZERS!!! We are officially opening our 22nd year of the Blues Alley summer jazz camp in what we hope will be an inspiring return to an in-person practicum and performance between July 26 – August 6, 2021. The summer jazz camp is an entry-level learning experience that will be offered as a hybrid educational platform with both in-person and on-line instruction. Students should possess at least one year of prior instruction and will be restricted to students between the ages of 11-18 years old based upon their personal musical abilities. We have deliberately rescheduled our summer dates to accommodate the national vaccine distribution timeline and have further reserved those dates with St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in Washington, DC. St. Augustine’s Church is located at 555 Water Street, SW in The Wharf District, across from the SW/Navy Yard metro station and along the Potomac River boundary channel. While our camp program continues to evolve, we have recruited a qualified faculty that will be able to alternatively pivot from on-site or educate on-line also. Please subscribe to our quarterly newsletter to keep apprised of our ever-evolving updates.
We’d like to offer you the opportunity to join our mission through participation, partnership or donation. Our goal is to expand your jazz music horizon the Blues Alley way!

From our programs to our partners, you will find a veritable medley of musical material related to our mission of youth, jazz and education. These three components are at the core of our pursuit to preserve and promote the jazz music art form.
