About This Activity

Jazz House Kids, a Montclair-based nonprofit that has gained a reputation as one of the nation’s preeminent arts education and performance organizations, announces “CHiCA Power,” a special instrumental residency for young female musicians. Held each Sunday afternoon from 1:00 pm to 3:45 pm, the CHiCA Power Residency® is part of Jazz House Kids’ ongoing mission to close the gap in arts education, giving young women musicians an artistic edge and the tools needed to break down barriers to a life-long love of playing jazz. Free for girls ages 12 to 18 with at least one year of playing experience and the ability to read music, the residency is funded by ongoing support from the Montclair Fund for Women, with additional support from Nancy Northup and James Johnson in memory of a Jazz House Kids parent, and other generous donors. Pre-registration is required. Led by two accomplished musicians and educators, bassist/cellist Jennifer Vincent and pianist/composer Nicki Denner, the CHiCA Power Residency will feature several world–renowned women instrumentalists on today’s jazz scene as special guests. Students will learn about jazz pioneers such as Mary Lou Williams, Melba Liston, Shirley Scott and Marian McPartland and study present day jazz icons such as Esperanza Spalding, Regina Carter, Anat Cohen, Terri Lyne Carrington and Geri Allen. Each week, the participants will break out into ensembles by level, learning compositions by female jazz artists.
