Clinics & Masterclasses
Accomplished musicians from around the country attend this festival and one of their contributions is to host educational classes. These clinics and masterclasses help spread the wealth of knowledge that congregates in Eau Claire at this special event.
The festival culminates in two nightly performances of multiple ensembles, ultimately featuring UW- Eau Claire's Jazz Ensemble I collaborating with the selected guest artists that year. Click here to read more about this year's guest artists.
