Hill Country Jazz Festival

Though this is a very difficult year for teaching, we know that many of you are able to provide your jazz bands with in-person instruction. In the interest of health and safety we can’t host any bands at the university this year, but we are happy to announce the first (and hopefully last!) edition of the Virtual Hill Country Jazz Festival
To allow optimal time for rehearsals and recording, the festival will occur on April 17th. We will be accepting video and audio submissions of your band, and all video submissions have the opportunity to be shown on our jazz studies Facebook page at the director’s discretion.

  • The application (with reduced fee!) will be due by April 2nd, with all submissions due by April 12th.
  • Performances will be a maximum of 30 minutes long.
  • All submissions will be judged by a distinguished panel and awards will be given for outstanding bands and outstanding soloists.
  • All submissions will be deleted after the festival for safety.
