The SUU High School Jazz Festival is an education-based event with the intent of providing high schools with the opportunity to perform and receive feedback from qualified jazz adjudicators. This is not a competitive event, (however, recognition will be given to outstanding soloists and outstanding sections.) Additionally, students can learn firsthand from internationally recognized artists in a clinic format. 

This one-day event includes adjudicated, high school performances, a mid-day clinic, and a late afternoon concert (4 pm) featuring our guest artist and the SUU Jazz Ensemble. Application fee is 125.00 per ensemble and 50.00 per additional ensemble. Registration times are limited and are arranged on a first-come, first-served, basis.
