High School and Middle School Ensemble Performances and Clinics

Registered high school and middle school ensembles will perform in 20 minute time slots on Friday (April 8) and will then participate in a 15 - 20 minute clinic with two clinicians/adjudicators.  Adjudicators will provide written feedback for every big band and combo performance.  All performances and clinics will all take place in the University Center.

Guest Artist Clinic

Trombonist/composer Michael Davis will be presenting an educational clinic at 4:00 on Friday (April 8).  Location TBD.  This clinic is free and open to the public.

Jam Session!

The popular jam session for all participants will be held from 11:00am-1:00pm in the Wildcat Den in the University Center.  Traditionally, jam sessions were the place where emerging jazz artists congregated to try out new ideas and work at perfecting the craft of improvisation. This session will be offered in that spirit, and will provide students an opportunity to practice improvisation and listen to others. All are encouraged to participate.
