The Hilton Head Jazz Clinic, Hilton Head Jazz Guitar Institute (June 26-29 from 1pm-4pm) and main Hilton Head Jazz Camp (July 10-15 from 9am-4pm) will take place on the beautiful campus of Hilton Head Christian Academy located at 55 Gardner Drive in Hilton Head, South Carolina. This 13-acre campus, only 3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean serves as a terrific setting for learning jazz with our esteemed faculty.
Students will use multiple rehearsal spaces and classrooms for the big band & combo rehearsals, improv, jazz theory, master classes and elective offerings. Although a majority of our students are local to South Carolina and Georgia, we offer lodging options for students who wish to attend the Hilton Head Jazz Camp from out-of-state.
We will be utilizing Hilton Head Christian Academy’s brand new Fine Arts Facilities, including a new band room, classroom rehearsal spaces and the new Performing Arts Center. The Performing Arts Center features a large stage, state-of-the art sound and lighting and new black curtain, with seating for 400 guests. This will also be the location for our public faculty recital on Tuesday, July 11th at 7:00pm and our Camp Recital held Friday, July 14th at 5:00pm.
On Wednesday during the jazz camp week, students will be attending a private lunch concert at the award winning Jazz Corner jazz club located on the south end of Hilton Head Island. Recognized as one of the 150 top jazz rooms in the world by Downbeat magazine, this mid-week trip to the Jazz Corner will be a memorable experience for our students. It is located in the Village @ Wexford at 1000 William Hilton Parkway.
After students have completed a wonderful week of rehearsals and preparation, we will celebrate with a BBQ dinner on Friday afternoon following our camp day. The finale concert will take place Saturday, July 15th @ 2pm at the premier Seahawk Cultural Center located at 70 Wilborn Drive on the campus of Hilton Head High School. With seating available for 600 guests, this is an ideal location for our final performance of the week. Students will report to the space on that Saturday for a final rehearsal, pizza party and performance. Please invite all of your family and friends to join us for this final performance at 2pm!
