NORFOLK – Thousands of junior and senior high school students representing close to 80 ensembles from approximately 50 high schools throughout the region will take part in the annual Jazz Festival at Northeast Community College.

Trophies will be awarded to the top four jazz bands and show/jazz choirs in each of the four levels of competition. Outstanding instrumental and vocal soloists’ trophies will also be presented in each division.

Dr. Linda Boullion, music department chair and director of choral music activities at Northeast, invites everyone to share in the experience. "Every year, we see some very talented young musicians and vocalists at our festival.  It makes for a great day of music for our competing students and other guests. We encourage the public to come to campus to enjoy some great performances.”

The Northeast Community College Jazz Festival continues to be one of the few jazz festivals in the Midwest approved by the National Association of Secondary Principals for high school and junior high school participation.

The Northeast Jazz Festival is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Boullion at (402) 844-7354.
