Faculty members from the Juilliard School worked and played in a jazz camp earlier this month with about 50 teens ages 13 to 18 from the CSRA and in other states as far away as Texas.

For the past four years, the Juilliard in Aiken organization has hosted a large festival each March, concerts and outreach efforts for schools.

However, this is the first time the Juilliard in Aiken group has hosted a jazz camp, said Connie Young, vice president. The event culminated Friday night with a concert.
