Jazz St. Louis Artist Residency

Jazz St. Louis’s Artist Residency Program brings professional jazz artists and educators to St. Louis for an entire week. During that week, the artists travel throughout the metro area conducting master classes and clinics with small groups of middle and high school musicians, performing for large groups of elementary students, and presenting concerts in the community.

While in-person activities are on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, Jazz St. Louis is committed to providing access to our world-class residency artists through a series of live, interactive, virtual events. See the full schedule and sign up to participate below. 

Online Materials

Past virtual events are archived and available on our YouTube channel.

All residency events can also be viewed live on the Jazz St. Louis Education Facebook Group
