Jazz and World Music Festival

  • Presented by Capital University Jazz Studies/Contemporary Music Programs

    Capital University's Conservatory of Music will present the 25th Annual Jazz & World Music Festival, April 4-27, 2019. This event features music by 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. A full schedule will be coming.

    Friday, April 12, is earmarked for the Jazz Ensemble Invitational, bringing together middle and high school, collegiate and community jazz ensembles from within a multi-state region, and our own Capital ensembles for a friendly non-competitive atmosphere in an educationally emphasized setting.
