University of South Florida to Host First International Jazz Composers’ Symposium

The University of South Florida will host the first International Jazz Composer’s Symposium March 9-11. Bob Brookmeyer, John Clayton, and Dave Douglas are featured on a guest panel to the conference.

The conference will provide students, educators and musicians with forums for interacting with one another through lectures, master classes, research presentations, performances, new music reading sessions and panel discussions. The winning selections of a national call for papers and compositions will also be discussed and performed. Thirteen composers will have pieces read during new music sessions, six participants will present research papers and 14 will present research posters. The compositions will be performed by Chuck Owen & the Jazz Surge in an open workshop setting and the guest panel will choose two pieces to be awarded a $500 prize.
