AT TRI-C, WE’RE COMMITTED TO JAZZ EDUCATION. EVERY DAY.
Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland is one of America’s first educational jazz festivals and has grown into the region’s premier center for jazz education.
The Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts on the Metropolitan Campus houses the Tri-C Jazz Studies Program, the Tri-C JazzFest High School All-Stars and the Young Visiting Artists Series.
Throughout the year, we make frequent visits to area schools and hold special master classes and workshops in our state-of-the-art building with legendary and early-career artists who inspire music and non-music students alike. Our new jazz pop-ups in unexpected spaces and area clubs help us reach new audiences and create a vibrant jazz scene in Cleveland.
The Young Visiting Artists program
, under the direction of Dominick Farinacci, is in full swing, with exciting, early career artists teaching and performing with kids throughout the year. Other programs include Summer with the Jazz Masters
and Education Days
