BRATTLEBORO- The Vermont Jazz Center will host a new 10-week session of classes beginning the week of February 12. Courses include Youth Jazz for ages 10 through high school, Anna Patton’s Soubrette Choir, the Latin Jazz Ensemble, the Jazz Uke Ensemble, and new this semester, the Jazz Guitar Ensemble with instructor Draa Hobbs.

The VJC also welcomes drummer Claire Arenius as the new instructor of the Blue Note Ensemble.

Consider joining a combo and learn how to perform classic jazz compositions while being guided by one of the VJC’s professional faculty. There are opportunities for all including classical musicians intrigued by jazz’s structure and improvisational opportunities.

Sessions are 10 weeks long except for Youth Jazz which is eight weeks and will begin on February 26. The classes will culminate in a concert on Thursday, May 10, at the VJC. Sessions are $250, except Latin Jazz which is $200 and Youth Jazz, which is $100.
