The Skidmore Jazz Institute is celebrating 31 summers of giving young musicians the opportunity to study with jazz masters in a supportive environment. And while they’re at the institute some of the acclaimed jazz musicians play concerts at Skidmore College’s Zankel Music Center. The musicians are world class and the tickets are seriously inexpensive, making it one of the best musical bargains in Saratoga Springs.
