Traditional Jazz Youth Band Festival

Description: the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Youth Band Festival was through a SJUSD program Studio E3 based at San Juan High School. We are now presenting our 12th annual event with the Sac State Jazz Studies Program on Feb 11, 2017. We have grown to 30 regional student bands performing in our scholastic jazz festival. We believe that we are still the only such festival dedicated to the performance of Traditional Jazz. Our featured guest artist is trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso from NY. He and top musicians and music educators in the field of trad jazz will conduct clinics, jazz workshops and jam sessions throughout the day.
