High School Honor Jazz Band

The NEIBA Honor Jazz Band Festival typically takes place on the first Saturday in January following winter break. Nominations are solicited late October through early-November and the selection process is completed by early December. The event has been held for many years at Cedar Rapids Kennedy High School and features two bands (Class 4A and Class 1A/2A/3A) rehearsing with guest directors during the day and giving an evening performance. Guest directors are always great secondary or collegiate jazz educators from around the area. There is a fee of $15 per selected student.

NEIBA Directors: The nomination form can be found here when we get closer to the event and it is available.
