ArtsRockford is a really cool organization here in the area. If you haven't heard of them, they are a non-profit focused on furthering the arts community in Rockford. From their offices on Belding Rd, they provide mentoring, classes, scholarships, and workshops. They're constantly doing events and exhibitions and it's just fantastic for Rockford.
Right now they're featuring Jazz Improv Clinics on the 3rd Sunday afternoon of each month for middle school & HS band / jazz students. How cool is that!? Your middle school/high school band student can bring their own instrument to play, or you can show up just to listen. Admission is $3 per person, and everyone is welcome to watch! There will be snacks and soft drinks available to purchase.
You can check out this Jazz Improv Clinic Sunday Sept 16th from 3pm-5pm at the ArtsRockford center at 6585 Belding Road, suite D (across the parking lot from Timbers Inn), and again on October 13th and the last one is November 19th. Check out the flier below for full details, and visit their Facebook page for more fun events!
