Northwest Jazz Festival

2022 Northwest Jazz Festival
Friday, February 18, 2022

Northwest Missouri State University is proud to invite middle school and high school jazz ensembles and combos to the Northwest Jazz Festival on Friday, February 18, 2022. At this point, we are planning to host this event on campus, but reserve the right to move to a virtual format if the public health situation worsens. We are pleased to present a 12:00 performance by the Northwest Jazz Ensemble, 1:00 p.m. master classes, and a 5:00 p.m. Awards Concert featuring this year’s guest artists, the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra! Special thanks to the Missouri Arts Council for helping to support the KCJO guest appearance.
