UNC GREELEY JAZZ FESTIVAL

The Festival is a non-competitive educational and cultural facet of the UNC Jazz Studies Program that furthers the University of Northern Colorado’s mission of lifelong learning and commitment to service.

The 2017 UNC/Greeley Jazz Festival, now celebrating its 47th year, will welcome elementary school, middle school, high school, and college jazz ensembles from throughout the United States.

In 2016, participating schools came from Washington, Texas, Maryland, Nevada, Iowa, Arizona, Kansas, New Mexico, North Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

Each year, we hire some of the most respected, experienced, and talented clinicians from across the United States.

We select 30-40 artists/clinicians specifically based on their ability to provide valuable guidance to students and educators and their ability to perform and demonstrate their knowledge at the highest professional levels.

OPEN TO ALL LEVELS

Open to all levels from elementary school through college/university and semi-professional groups, the festival hosts a wide array of groups in a non-competitive environment.

Groups may register in four categories: big bands, combos, jazz vocal groups, and vocal soloists.

All groups receive recorded comments and a feedback clinic from some of our 40 artist/clinicians (college big bands receive recorded comments only).

Each day, several educational workshops on topics ranging from improvisation and arranging to vocal and instrumental techniques are offered by the artist/clinicians and our main stage artists.
