John Clikeman at VCU Jazz Day
VCU Jazz Day is a jazz improvisation and combo workshop offered free of charge by VCU to high school musicians. On February 11, the VCU Jazz Studies Program invited selected jazz students to spend a full day with the talented jazz faculty and VCU jazz students, participating in workshops and master classes conducted by VCU Jazz Studies faculty.

The day culminated in performances by six combos of students formed from different high schools in the region and rehearsed by talented VCU faculty members. MLWGS students Nathaniel Tombes('14), Stephen Roach('12), John Clikeman('12) and Joseph Boyle('15) were very appreciative of this exciting learning opportunity provided by Professor Antonia Garcia and the VCU Jazz Studies program.
