Monrovia, CA, July 06, 2022 –(PR.com)– The Society for the Preservation of Dixieland Jazz (SPDJ) is very proud and excited to announce two Teagarden Jazz Camp scholarship winners, Edgar Salas of Duarte, and Joshua Johnston of Azusa. Edgar won the scholarship in 2020, but was unable to attend due to the camp being canceled in 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic. Joshua is SPDJ’s 2022 winner. Both youth will be attending Teagarden Jazz Camp in Sacramento this summer. Both youth have been involved in the SPDJ youth mentoring program, and are very involved behind the scenes ensuring the Society for the Preservation of Dixieland Jazz continues the organization’s rich history and heritage. Both scholarship winners will provide members a report from their jazz camp experiences in August.
