jazz-festival-310x210.pngThe JMU George West Jazz Festival is a non-competitve performance opportunity for all ages and ability levels—combos & big bands are eligible to perform. Ensembles have the option of performing for a rating or for comments only. Each school is allotted a 30-minute performance time in the Forbes Center Concert Hall (20 minutes for middle schoool ensembles) and is provided with recorded comments by two adjudicators. Each school receives a 45-minute clinic (30 minutes for middle schools) by one of our guest artists immediately following the ensemble's performance.
