CCJA Summer Institute 2021

A wide variety of week-long, action packed ensembles & classes

Week 1: June 7-12, 2021 - Denver (CCJA HQ at 800 Kalamath Street)

Week 2: June 21-26, 2021 - Denver (CCJA HQ at 800 Kalamath Street) & Lafayette, CO

CCJA's Summer Institute offers something for everyone, from middle schoolers to adult musicians. Immerse yourself in topic-based courses and action-packed themed and jazz ensembles for a week at a time! Summer Institute classes are easy to mix and match - students can participate in more than one at a time and are welcome to join us for one or both weeks (ensembles and classes are different from Week 1 to Week 2). The majority of our Summer Institute Classes take place at our CCJA HQ (800 Kalamath Street Denver) but we are thrilled to offer two groups in Boulder County (scroll down to see information)

Note: We will still be implementing and adhering to the Covid-19 policies and restrictions we have enacted during the pandemic. This means we will have a limited amount of spots available in each class/ensemble, in order to limit the amount of students socially distanced in each of our rehearsal rooms and ensure a safe environment. We will be following all state and local guidelines at the time the Summer Institute takes place and will heed CDC guidances. For more information about the Covid-19 policies we have in place, get in touch with us or access our policies here

Need-based scholarships are available for CCJA Summer Institute Programming, please reach out for more information.
