Participants enrolled in the Omaha Jazz Workshop summer camp were busy last week under the watchful eye of Jim Widner. The week-long camp is designed for middle school, high school and college students, and adults. Students learned about jazz theory, improvisation and performance. The students served as the opening act of a June 19 concert featuring the Jim Widner Big Band in the Strauss Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.
