Colony Directorâ€™s Letter 2018 Welcome to the 2018 Brubeck Institute Summer Jazz Colony at University of the Pacific! This yearâ€™s colony continues the tradition of bringing talented high school musicians from around the globe to our beautiful campus for a week of immersion in jazz technique and performance. Students attend classes and performances from artists-in-residence who are luminaries in the field; together, the students and faculty learn and stretch the boundaries of the art form. The Summer Jazz Colony is an important part of the mission of both the Brubeck Institute and the Conservatory of Music, providing education and outreach on the work of Dave and Iola Brubeck and continuing the tradition of musical excellence at Pacific. I hope you enjoy the opportunity the colony provides to hear current masters and rising stars in jazz, and I thank you for your support of these talented young people.

Dave Brubeck’s Vision for the
Dave Brubeck’s letter below, which articulates his hopes for the Brubeck Institute, present and future, was written just six months prior to his passing on December 5, 2012. “The Institute is a realization of a dream. From the earliest days in my career, I sought the acceptance and recognition of jazz as a serious art form that reflected American ideals of freedom and individual expression balanced with group responsibility and interdependence. Like America itself, jazz has always drawn from many cultures and has been enriched by that cross-fertilization. The Brubeck Institute is not about jazz studies alone, however. It is also about social and philosophical issues. Over the years I have become more and more interested in applying these thoughts to classical composition for chorus and orchestra, chamber ensembles, and contemporary music in a variety of forms. I believe in the power of music to transform lives as well as to enlighten and entertain. Once when asked how I would like to be remembered, I answered, “As someone who opened doors.” The purpose of the Brubeck Institute is to provide the key that opens doors for all who participate, whether as a research scholar in the Brubeck Archives, a Brubeck Fellow or Colonist, a member of academic symposia, a classical performer or teacher, contemporary composer, or an interested member of the audience. The door is open. Welcome!”
