What is Interplay
Jazz & Arts

Interplay Jazz & Arts is a holistic learning experience for musicians and artists of all ages and levels to explore and develop their art, creativity and confidence.

Workshops, master classes, and other learning and performance opportunities are designed to engage the whole student — mind, body and spirit — in the realization of their artistic and creative potential. Set in beautiful natural surroundings, and offering nurturing, healthy activities and meals, Interplay Jazz & Arts is more than arts education, it’s an exploration in living a more creative life.

"If jazz is a river of music, Interplay is the ‘deep end method.’ Many thanks for throwing me in, head-first"

− Dr. Tom Davis

"Walter Cunninghamʼs Gospel Choir takes singers out of their microphone-wielding comfort zones and inspires them to open their voices and hearts to fullest volume. With megawatts of energy and a voice that shows exactly what he wants."

− Thea Calitri-Martin
