2017 Jazz Composers’ Symposium

September 29, 2016

The International Society of Jazz Arrangers & Composers (ISJAC), in collaboration with the University of South Florida School of Music, will serve as host of the revival of the “International Jazz Composers‘ Symposium,” May 18-20, 2017. A gathering of jazz composers, musicians, scholars, students, and industry professionals from across the world; this unique forum offers attendees the opportunity to connect with fellow jazz composers as well as celebrated master artists while becoming exposed to a variety of new works, concepts, and related music industry trends. In addition, an open application and call for scores/papers will offer attendees several avenues in which to share and showcase their own work: via featured concert performance, guest artist master classes, research paper presentations, and the JCS’ unique “poster sessions.”

Taking place in the USF School of Music’s impressive new facility/concert halls located just north of downtown Tampa, the Symposium offers those in attendance two and a half days of events. 

JCS will also offer an education track.  Students and those just embarking on their journey in jazz composition will find workshops geared particularly for the novice.

Registration is now open.
