Travel to Europe and Play Jazz with JM Jazz World

JM Jazz World | Teen JazzIf you don’t have any plans for the summer, check out JM Jazz World for the opportunity to travel to Europe and play as part of their jazz orchestra.

The event will be held between June 27 and July 4, 2014 in Norway!

As part of the sixteen-piece orchestra, you will have the opportunity to perform in the Kongsberg Jazz Festival (the headliners this year include Joshua Redman, Chick Corea, and Dave Holland) and other performances TBA.

The auditions are being held for those who play saxophone, trombone, trumpet, horn, tuba, guitar, bass, drums, piano or vocals.

The event is open to those between the ages of 18-26. The deadline for application is April 11, 2014. Apply here.

Please note that if you are accepted into the JM Jazz World program, you will be responsible for covering the cost of traveling to and from Norway from your home country. If you need help funding your trip to Europe, consider a crowdfunding campaign (Indiegogo, Kickstarter, Pledgemusic, etc.).
