Jazz 1 & 2 to Perform at Essentially Ellington Festival

On Saturday, February 23rd, our top two jazz ensembles will perform at the Essentially Ellington Festival held at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music (CCM). This event is part of a series of regional festivals sponsored by the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. These are non-competitive, education-focused festivals designed to offer high school jazz bands of all levels the opportunity to perform the music of Duke Ellington and other seminal big band composers and arrangers at various locations across the country. Each band will perform for a panel of evaluators, and will then receive a clinic after their performance. Students will get a chance to attend masterclasses on their specific instrument, and will be in attendance for the Gala Concert that night featuring the CCM Jazz Orchestra.
