Vermont Jazz Center launches new semester of classes Sept. 18

BRATTLEBORO — The Vermont Jazz Center will host a 10-week session of classes beginning the week of Sept. 18.

Courses include an expanded youth program for ages 10 to 16, an ensemble led by bebop master Scott Mullett (Blue Note Ensemble), Anna Patton's popular Soubrette Choir, the VJC's Latin Jazz Ensemble, and Julian Gerstin's Afro-Caribbean Percussion & Rhythms.

A new offering this year is Ben Carr's Jazz Uke Ensemble.

“Consider joining a combo and learning to perform classic jazz compositions while being guided by one of the VJC's professional faculty,” the VJC said in a news release. “If you've never improvised, that's no problem. There are opportunities for all including classical musicians intrigued by jazz's structure and improvisational opportunities.”

Sessions are 10 weeks (except for Youth Jazz which is eight weeks). Prices and starting dates are listed at
