This year these students will be hauling off to Trondheim Norway to take part in our 14th International Jazz Exchange. We hop across the water in March to an arts school where we play alongside Norwegian jazz musicians and then 3 weeks later those same students come visit us here for a reciprocal event in April. Our clinicians abroad have been Eirik Hegdal, Gunnar Berg, Frode Fjellheim, Sturla Eide, Hildegunn Oiseth, and Mattis Kleppen. On our side, the American-based clinicians have been, Brad Upton, Greg Laliberte, Otis Taylor, Victor Mestas, and this year will be John Gunther.
