Jazz residencies are sponsored by UVM's Jazz Studies program in conjunction with the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts and/or the UVM Lane Series. These artists work with the UVM Jazz Ensemble or combos, often culminating in a collaborative performance. If you are interested in working as a guest artist, e-mail jazz ensemble director Prof. Alex Stewart.
