Fall-Spring-Summer 2022-23 Concert Schedule

The UNC Jazz Studies faculty and students thank Jamey Aebersold for sponsoring our guest artists (Joel Frahm, Philip Dizack, Pharez Whitted, and Marcus Finnie) as part of the Jamey Aebersold Visiting Artist Series.  We thank Thomas F. Steward for his generous gift which funds the day-to-day operations of UNC Jazz Studies. We also thank Dr. Jesse White for his generous contributions in honor of Jim Ketch which have provided support for the purchase of instruments that are used in the UNC Jazz Band.  We thank Fred and Gail Fearing, Jim and Jo Ann Harllee, and other anonymous donors for their kindness in supporting student scholarships and student initiatives, and Jeff Chandler, Howard Aldrich, and the Triangle Community Foundation for their generosity in providing support which enables UNC Jazz Studies to host the annual Carolina Jazz Festival/Essentially Ellington Regional Festival.
