Discover the origins and evolutions of this unique American art form and learn how to listen and appreciate it guided by experts. Daily discussions and private performances equip you to enjoy this music not only at the festival, but also in your future musical adventures.

• Special passes admit you to the Musician’s Hospitality Room, where you can mingle with musicians and chat with them about their craft.
• Discussions with jazz experts help you interpret the performances you attend, in addition to addressing a host of other topics, from Vaudeville greats to the business side of jazz.
