DCG Jazz Festival

Welcome to the inaugural DCG JAZZ FESTIVAL!

The festival will be held Saturday, January 27, 2018, at Dallas Center-Grimes High School. This event is sanctioned by IHSMA and we will accommodate schools wishing to participate in both the State Jazz Festival as well as our festival. Results will count toward wild card consideration for the Iowa Jazz Championships.

Our goal is to provide a quality performance venue and quality feedback in an educational setting for high school and middle school jazz bands.

For our first year, we intend to run one performance center with both a warm-up and clinic room. There will be two judges and rotating clinicians.

The awards ceremony will take place at 4:30 and trophies will be awarded.

Registration fees are due by December 1, 2017, at $150 per band. Please make checks out to DCG High School Jazz

Concessions will be provided throughout the day.

Admissions will be $5 for adults and $3 for students K-12.

We hope you will consider joining us for a wonderful day of Jazz in the Metro!
