Jazz and World Music Festival
Capital University's Conservatory of Music will present the 22nd annual Jazz & World Music Festival from April 11-April 26, 2016. This event features music student, faculty and guest ensemble concerts, both on campus and in the community, and world-class jazz artists in clinics, workshops, and in concert throughout the period. All events are free and open to the public unless marked otherwise. In addition, one day is earmarked for the Jazz Ensemble Invitational which brings together middle and high school, collegiate and community jazz ensembles from within a multi-state region for a friendly non-competitive atmosphere in an educationally emphasized setting. Adjudication is delivered each year by judges recognized globally as master educators. The event is an endorsed event of the Jazz Education Network.
In honor of our 40th birthday of the jazz studies program, the April 15, 2016 Invitational will feature notable Capital alumni and current faculty as adjudicators and guest performers. We are continuing to create a stellar lineup at this time and will announce all participants very soon. Stay tuned, but in the meantime, save the date, as you will not want to miss this event!
