Evening activity Jazz & Collaboration: Informing Together! Every jazz performance is an act of reimagining where jazz musicians take something familiar and, by way of an improvised, “I-never-thought-of-it-that-way-before” conversation, transform it into something new. Getting in the Groove experience combines jazz performance and facilitated conversation that aim to provide learning at three levels:

  1. The Magic — What’s going on when musicians are picking notes out of thin air?
  2. The Knowledge — What is it that jazz musicians know that makes that possible?
  3. The Learning — What are the implications of what jazz knows for other kinds of collaborative action in our organizations and communities

A performance by world-class teaching, recording, and touring jazz musicians serves as the experiential ground for the program and a basis for an exploration of the conditions needed for creative, transformational conversations.
