SUU High School Jazz Festival

Saturday, February 20, 2016

The SUU Music Department will host the 3rd annual High School Jazz Festival in Cedar City, Utah on February 20, 2016. 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 30-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.
  • 50 tickets to the 7th Annual Guest Artist Concert with the SUU Jazz Band, directed by Dr. Thomas Herb, which will be held later in the year. 

Registration is $125.00. Additional groups from each school are welcome with an additional $25.00 fee per group. An SUU Jazz Festival t-shirt will be available for pre-order for $7.00.

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