Northwoods Jazz Camp welcomes musicians and the public

As the weather warms in anticipation of the approaching Northwoods summer, the 33rd annual Northwoods Jazz Camp will also make its return to the delight of both musicians and fans of live Jazz music.

The Northwoods Jazz Camp will take place from Wednesday, May 15 to Saturday, May 18 at Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander.

"The camp offers 25 to 30 adult-aged musicians the chance to hone their skills alongside jazz professionals from around the country," organizers said in a press release. "Younger jazz students are accepted if accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other responsible adult. Each night, advanced students sit in with the professionals to put on a concert that's open to the public. While the music certainly takes center stage, campers also engage with the instructors over meals and at the bar where stories are swapped and jam sessions frequently materialize. Campers also enjoy the resort's facilities, including the pool, surrounding woods and the shores of beautiful Lake George."

Camp Director Kim Richmond is an industry veteran with many years of experience in jazz, playing with the likes of Stan Kenton, Louis Bellson, Bob Florence, Bill Holman, and Vinny Golia among others. He also spent 12 years as an adjunct professor in the Jazz Studies department of the University of Southern California, the release states. He'll be joined by David Scott of New York City on trumpet, Andy Baker of Chicago on Trombone, Tom Hynes of Los Angeles on guitar, Ryan Frane of Duluth on piano, David Story of Stevens Point on bass, Tim Davis of Chicago on drums, and Kimberly Ford of Santa Barbara on vocals. As a special treat, guest star vocalist Steve March Tormé, son of Mel Tormé, will be on hand to give a clinic and a performance.
