The 37th Annual UCM Jazz Festival will be held on Saturday, February 23rd, 2013.
JAZZ FESTIVAL FORMAT
As in the past, we plan to have between 30 and 50 senior and junior high school/middle school jazz groups participating in the festival. They will come from classes 5A, 4A, 3A and A/2A as designated by MSHSAA regulations, and will receive constructive comments (recorded digitally and emailed to directors), rating sheets, and some individual time with our judges (as programming allows).
The festival will run approximately 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM. There will be a concert featuring some of our adjudicators performing with UCM's jazz ensembles, along with the presentation of individual awards and "I" rating plaques (see below) at the end of the day (approximately 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM).
Please note: we will continue using a RATINGS ONLY format for the festival this year (non-competitive only). All groups receiving a "I" rating will receive a trophy/plaque. It is our hope to make the festival as positive and educational an experience as possible.
If you are interested in bringing your bands and/or combos to this year's festival, please use the following application method:
1. Complete the on line application, submit the form, then mail payment to the address indicated.
- $150.00 bands
