We are all shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Mic Gillette, who has been a huge part of the Workshop for many years. A powerhouse of a player and always fun to be around, he brought joy and inspiration wherever he went. Please read more about our friend here.
Registration for the 2016 Workshop, July 31-August 5, is open!
Sign up early to get a $40 discount.
We hope to see you there!
Thanks to Mr. Kerwin Lee for providing audio recordings of the individual combos at Friday’s Final Concert!
Check them out here.
Also, the Tuesday and Thursday Events at Lamorinda Music can be heard here.
2015 was a fantastic year for the Lafayette Summer Music Jazz Workshop! The Friday performances were tremendous, it was a great year for the students and returning staff, and new teachers have told us that the Workshop is a really special place. We agree, and things are already started for next year!
On Saturday, our huge crew of volunteers helped the staff get the camp put away in record time. The workshop couldn’t happen without this amazing workforce. Sunday morning Mr. Athayde hopped on the Zamboni and spiffed up the Multipurpose room floor to start his day: he’ll be busy for a while with the final details of putting the 2015 Workshop to bed.
Everything is being readied for 2016: we hope to see you all there again! Registration will be open around the New Year.
It’s been a great week at the Workshop! The combos have been working on their pieces all week, and the performance schedule for the final concert can be found here.
There are some walk-up dinners from Los Primos Market available for those that didn’t order ahead. Supply is limited so arrive early for those.
Feel free to come and go during the concert, but allow time so you don’t miss your student’s combo.
Check out the program!
