Join us at the Wave Wall Performance Platform for a performance by Fernando Jones’ Blues Camp, part of Fresh Fest! presented by Allstate Insurance Company, a two-day showcase of Chicago’s talented young performing artists.
Fernando Jones’ Blues Camp is a program of the Blues Kids Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. It was established to preserve, perform and promote the Blues among America’s youth, parents and educators under the tutelage of highly qualified instructors, globally. The Camp’s focus includes: social and emotional learning; music literacy; pedagogy and andragogy; and music as a second language.
Each summer, the Blues Camp is presented in different parts of the United States and Europe; participation for all kids is free. The fun-filled, highly-instructional experience is designed to impact the life of the “Blues Kid” who simply wants to experience this cultural enrichment opportunity in an organic and nurturing environment with like-minded others.
Fresh Fest! presented by Allstate Insurance Company is a two-day showcase of Chicago’s talented young performing artists, presenting a range of musical and dance talent in a variety of styles, including blues, classical, rock, jazz and more.
