The festival features high school and middle school big bands and combos. All ensembles receive constructive feedback from adjudicators and may elect to perform for comments only or ratings. The unique aspect of this festival is that each year, we feature a guest artist and clinician that performs throughout the day for your students and holds clinics that will expose your students to professional insight and knowledge.

The jazz festival is open to high schools and middle school jazz ensembles. Registration is due Nov. 2nd, 2019.

Bios of these industry professionals who are masters of constructive and useful feedback for your ensembles!
