Berklee College of Music Plans 20th Annual Italian Jazz Clinic

Berklee College of Music will celebrate its twentieth season of jazz education this summer at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy. From July 5-17 the Berklee Summer School at Umbria Jazz Clinics will bring a sample of their college-based curriculum to young musicians by offering performance and theory classes; faculty vocal and instrumental instruction; and the opportunity for students to audition for college placement and scholarships.

In previous years, the festival has drawn nearly 5,000 students and over $1 million in scholarship money has been awarded. 240 students are planning to attend this year’s festival from Europe, Africa, Australia, and the United States.
