The 36th Annual Northwest Jazz Festival is a non-competitive performance opportunity for vocal and instrumental jazz groups at all levels of proficiency. For two days, high-quality assessment and instruction will be provided by respected jazz educators in a positive and constructive learning environment which encourages young musicians and teachers to grow through camaraderie and musical exchange.
A highlight of the festival is the Monday evening concert featuring Kate Reid, Brad Leali, and the All-Star Trio including Josh Nelson (Piano), Clipper Nelson (Bass) and Todd Strait (drums). The concert begins at 7 p.m. in the Powell High School Auditorium. This is a must-see event!
Concert tickets cost $28 and can be purchased by calling 307-754-6425 or stopping by Room 16 of the Nelson Performing Arts Center on the NWC campus.
The Northwest Jazz Festival is supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
