We will admit 75 big bands and 20 combos in various categories, including Large High School Big Bands and Combos, Small High School Bands and Combos, and Middle School/Junior High School Big Bands and Combos. As usual we will have 21 outstanding adjudicators representing significant performers and jazz educators from throughout the country, as well as numerous internationally regarded guest artists and clinicians. There will be a number of clinics and concerts throughout the day by our guest artists and adjudicators representing virtually every aspect of jazz performance.
