Guest Artists

Visiting artists are an essential component to the jazz area. Spring semester’s Jazz Week is built around a high-profile guest artist spending several days interacting and performing with the students in a variety of settings. The Jazz Spotlight is a similar event in the fall. Recent guest artists have included Branford Marsalis, Arturo O’Farrill, Rodney Whitaker, Ted Nash, Donny McCaslin, Joel Frahm, and Scott Wendholt.
