Please help us as we search for a new name for the PITTSBURGH JAZZ AND FIDDLING CAMP. We’re offering two free tuition scholarships to the contest winner to attend the newly-named camp, July 14–18, 2008.
* The name should be easy to remember, catchy, and unique.
* The name should reflect our emphasis on diverse styles, which includes jazz, fiddling, rock, and world music.
* The name can’t already belong to another camp, festival, or musical event.
The name can be very simple. For instance:
