Support International Summer Jazz Academy in Kraków, Poland

The International Summer Jazz Academy (ISJA) celebrates its 25th anniversary this year in Krakow, Poland with 100 students expected to attend.  

From 1995-2005, the ISJA Artistic Director was Mike Parkinson, former Chair of the Webster University Department of Music, assisted by several faculty colleagues and students, including Willem von Hombracht, who served as the ISJA Artistic Director from 2008-2014. The ISJA will be held at the Penderecki Academy of Music, July 25-August 1.

Willem and Mike have been invited to return as former ISJA Artistic Directors for this celebration by ISJA Administrative Director Grzegorz Motyka, head of the Krakow School of Jazz & Contemporary Music, the primary ISJA sponsor. All proceeds from the concert will be used to help underwrite their travel to Poland.
