The 6th annual Wetaskiwin Jazz Camp will be held from July 6-11, 2014 at Grace Lutheran Church in Wetaskiwin. Our Special Guest Artist this year is Juno-nominated vocalist Karin Plato from Vancouver! www.karinplato.com
The Wetaskiwin Jazz Camp, Directed and Founded by award-winning drummer Karl Schwonik, is an exciting opportunity for young aspiring Albertan musicians to learn about jazz, perform in front of an audience and learn from some of North America's finest musicians.
During the 5 day Camp, the students will be directed in small jazz combos, learn instrument technique, take in history and businesses classes, and most importantly PERFORM on the final day at a concert for their friends, family and the community.
NEW THIS YEAR: Singer's Workshop for Adults with Karin Plato. Singers, or aspiring singers, ages 16 and up are welcome to apply to this workshop that will happen each day from 4:30-6pm. The workshop will be specifically geared towards adults and honing your voice and singing abilities in all different kinds of settings.
2010 was the first year of the WJC's 'Special Guest Artist' series. Montréal Jazz Legend Rémi Bolduc joined the faculty in 2010 and 2011 and was a huge highlight for the Camp. 2012 saw 2-time Grammy nominee and percussionist Rogerio Boccato from NYC as our special guest. In 2013 had 2-time Grammy nominated pianist Zaccai Curtis from NYC as our guest. Juno-nominated vocalist Karin Plato from Vancouver will join us as our Guest Artist in 2014!
