High school jazz fest

The 26th annual Southwestern Ohio High School Jazz Festival will be held 1-9:30 p.m. Sunday, March 7, in the Center for Performing Arts. Director and founder James Olcott (music) said this year’s festival will focus on saxophones.

Guest clinicians have a wide variety of experience performing with bands that read like a "who’s who" of jazz, including the Glenn Miller Orchestra and the Tommy Dorsey Band.

Sixteen jazz bands from area high schools will perform during the day, and a concert at 7:30 p.m. with Miami’s 1:00 Jazz Ensemble and guest artists will be broadcast live on WMUB/NPR@88.5.

Events are free and open to the public.
