2018 Northwest Jazz Festival

Northwest Missouri State University is proud to invite middle school and high school jazz ensembles and combos to the annual Northwest Jazz Festival on Friday, February 23, 2018. We are still negotiating with a guest artist group, but will continue to offer two performances and a master class opportunity for participating schools

The fees for this year are $250 (Jazz Ensemble) and $200 (Jazz Combo). Once groups are registered online, I will send an invoice to directors. Please make contact with me via email if you have any questions. Due to space limitations, we are accepting only 36 groups this year…first come, first served.
