Jazz Studies - Annual CSUEB Jazz Festival

31st Annual CSU East Bay Jazz Festival

2016 Festival Information

Our 31th Annual CSU East Bay Jazz Festival is scheduled for April 14, 15 & 16, 2016.  Please check back soon for guest artist information.

The festival encourages and engages participants through interactive learning and playing. Each participating band has a 1/2 hour warmup time followed by a 45-minute time slot at their performance site. That 45 minutes can be used any way the director wants, and is most helpfully worked out where the participating band plays for 20-25 minutes their planned set (usually 3 tunes). During that time, the adjudicators will be sitting in the audience area speaking their comments into a recorder. When the band's set is done, the remaining time is used for the interactive clinic with the adjudicators who will be demonstrating the concepts they wish to convey with the bands. Check back soon for more detailed information.
