THEVCUJAZZSTUDIESCALENDAR,2008-2009 (subject to change)

This calendar is current as of August 15, 2008 and does not list the many visiting-artist clinics, concerts, and other jazz events added after that date. (Students in VCU Jazz ensembles should refer to the full calendar provided in the VCU Jazz Handbook and updated throughout the year via postings and e-mails by Prof. García.)

To stay informed about the calendar of VCU Jazz Activities, subscribe to the VCU Jazz E-Newsletter by e-mailing your interest to Prof. Antonio García, VCU’s Director of Jazz Studies, at ajgarcia@vcu.edu.
