The [URL]Janice Borla Vocal Jazz Camp;http://proactivekids.org/[/URL] and Hot Jazz -- 6 Cool Nites concert series will celebrate their 25th anniversaries when they return to North Central College this summer.

The Janice Borla Vocal Jazz Camp, founded in 1989, provides a rare educational experience for aspiring jazz vocalists in an intensified, one-week course of study and skills development conducted by an artist faculty of professional performing and recording artists.

Cited by Jazziz Magazine as "among the most innovative and dynamic summer jazz educational programs in the country," the camp has been featured on the PBS national news program "The News Hour with Jim Lehrer," HDNET-TV, WGN-TV and WTTW Channel 11 Chicago.

The camp's international reputation draws students from all parts of the United States, as well as from Canada, Europe and Asia. Participants typically range in age and background from high school and college students to adult professional vocalists and jazz educators.

The curriculum is designed specifically for the solo jazz vocalist. Daily activities include workshops in jazz improvisation, performance styles and techniques and solo performance preparation, as well as artist master classes, vocal jazz history and music theory.

There are also nightly faculty artist concerts, informal student jam sessions, and a final concert featuring each participant performing with the Staff Rhythm Section.

This year's camp, July 22-27, is open to all participants ages 14 through adult. Tuition is $650; housing and meals are available for an additional $300. The deadline for enrollment is June 1. Further information is available on the camp's website, [URL]janiceborlavocaljazzcamp.org;http://proactivekids.org/[/URL].

This year's featured vocal staff artists are Janice Borla, Jay Clayton, and Peter Eldridge, three internationally acclaimed jazz vocalists who each possesses an extensive resume as both a performing artist and a jazz educator.

Camp founder and director Janice Borla's recordings and performances have earned her consistently high praise for her beautiful sound, adventurous repertoire and imaginative improvisations.

Her latest CD, "From Every Angle," was among DownBeat Magazine's Best CDs of the Year.
