The purpose of the Jazz Festival is to instill an appreciation of the jazz genre by exposing students to blues, boogie, ragtime, standards, and other jazz styles using composed pieces, original arrangements, and improvisation. CD accompaniments may be used. All solos must be memorized and performance ready. Ensemble performers may use printed music but no photocopies.

AM Program: 10:30 - 12:00
PM Program: 12:30 - 2:30

There will be a raffle at the end of each program. Winners must be present.
Students who don’t stay for their full program—either AM or PM—will be disqualified to participate next year.

Ensemble performers must be responsible for all of their equipment (music stands, special chairs, etc.) and must consult with the stage manager 15 minutes before the program starts.

The committee reserves the right to disqualify (or reject) selections which do not adhere to these guidelines. Feel free to call a committee member if you are unsure.

Students are encouraged to dress in an appropriate and unique manner to fit the music and the occasion, but NO jeans and NO athletic shoes are allowed on stage.
