The third annual Triton Jazz Festival will be held in Decker Auditorium on the Iowa Central Community College campus on Thursday, January 14 and Friday, January 15, 2016. Area high school jazz band directors, we invite you and your students to take part in this educational opportunity!
Each participating band will be allowed a performance on stage of Decker Auditorium to an adjudication panel of 3 jazz educators. Following each performance, bands will receive a clinic from an educator. Bands will perform by IHSMA class, with 1A and 3A bands performing on Thursday, January 14. 2A and 4A bands will perform on Friday, January 15. Place awards will be given to the top 3 schools in each class, with remaining rankings not being made public.
Entry fee for the Triton Jazz Festival will be $100 per band. Admission for spectators will be FREE of charge. Deadline for registration and payment is December 18, 2015.
Required and related forms (soloist sheet, repertoire sheet, campus maps, schedules and instructions) are available online and will be emailed to registering directors. For traveling schools, we again will have meals available to purchase in our NEW campus cafeteria for a nominal fee. We hope you will encourage your students to listen to the performances of other schools.Several directors have expressed to us the desire for a festival in our area of the state, as well as a festival that provides feedback to bands before IHSMA state contest. We welcome your band to our campus, to our festival and are confident it will meet these needs. If you are interest in participating, or have any questions, please reach out to Jeremy Smith, Director of Athletic Bands at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 515-574-1207.
Band results and soloist awards are now posted. We look forward to hosting you again in 2016!
