INTERLOCHEN ADULT BAND CAMP
When: August 11–14, 2020
Where: Virtual attendance
Join more than 70 adults from across the United States and around the globe for the 2020 Online Adult Band Camp and experience the joy of study and virtual performance of symphonic band repertoire in a challenging, supportive, fun, and friendly environment. This will be the 16th year of Interlochen's Adult Band Camp, which regularly draws amateur and professional players from across the country. It will be led by longtime artistic director Tom Riccobono. The distinguished faculty will teach masterclasses on instrumental technique and the fundamental basics of your instrument, host lectures, and will prepare students for individual solo video recordings of Gustav Holst's “First Suite in E-flat for Military Band,” which will be transformed into a virtual performance and launched at a later date.
Keith A. Aleo is the Instructor of Percussion at Interlochen Arts Academy, Director and Instructor of Orchestral Percussion at Interlochen Percussion Institute, and Adult Band Camp Percussion Faculty at Interlochen College of Creative Arts. Keith is also on the percussion faculty at Boston Conservatory and Director of Education and Orchestral Activities at the Avedis Zildjian Co.
Supplies needed for your at-home recording session include a mobile device with video and sound recording capabilities, headphones or earbuds, and a computer or iPad to "watch the conductor" during your recording.

DANIEL GLASS DENVER JAZZ INTENSIVE
When: August 14–16, 19, 21–23
Where: Mighty Fine Studios & Dazzle Jazz Club, Denver, Colorado
With support from Rupp’s Drum in Denver, Colorado, the Daniel Glass Denver Jazz Intensive is a hybrid online/in-person event that will be presented over two weekends between August 14–23. This workshop not only provides an in-depth course in jazz technique, it also offers participants the chance to perform and record with a professional Denver rhythm section in a world-class recording studio. By spreading the events across a ten-day period, participants can really dig into the material and make measurable progress. To ensure maximum one-on-one interaction, the event is limited to just 12 participants.
Workshops topics will include: Technique—Not just WHAT to play, but the mechanics of HOW to actually play it; Swing—drive any jazz band at a much deeper level; Comping Secrets—learn what (and what not) to play behind a soloist; Soloing—get clarity and focus in developing your ideas; and Recording—including a professionally produced video of your final performance.
