The International Society of Jazz Arrangers and Composers https://isjac.org welcomed over 200 jazz composers and artists to its 2nd Jazz Composers’ Symposium, May 16-18. Hosted by the University of Northern Colorado, the 3-day conference was incredibly inspiring – from the presentations of our featured guest artists: Vince Mendoza, Ron Miles/Bill Frisell, Darcy James Argue, Christine Jensen, and Chris Potter to the unveiling of so much new music by amazingly talented composers. I am so delighted and honored to be a part of this creative community, grateful to the members of the ISJAC Board who have given so much of their time and energy to ensuring the success of this event and growth of this organization, and proud to have had a role in envisioning and producing this bi-annual event. Now to get ready for Austin in 2021!!!
