Saturday, February 17, 2018

We're back! The SUU Music Department will host it's 4th annual High School Jazz Festival in Cedar City, Utah on February 17, 2018. This festival is committed to the encouragement and fostering of jazz performance and education in our schools. As such, we invite the participation of jazz big bands and combos of any variety to register. Our goal is to create a noncompetitive, positive, and supportive learning environment for jazz groups of all skill levels.

Each group in the festival will receive:

  • A 35-minute session in which to perform and be critiqued on stage by one of our clinicians.
  • A workshop on improvisation from one of our clinicians.
  • Free tickets to the SUU Jazz Guest Artist Concert with Grammy Award-winning jazz artist Aaron Lington, directed by Adam Lambert, to be held that evening. 

Registration is $130.00. Additional groups from each school are welcome with an additional $30.00 fee per group. An SUU Jazz Festival t-shirt will be available for pre-order for $8.00.

Please contact Dr. Adam Lambert ( or the SUU Music Department ( for further information.
