The South Suburban College Jazz Festival is moving into its twentieth year. It is a non-competitive festival that features Jr. High, Middle and High School bands.

Each band plays for 15-20 minutes and then receives a clinic by the guest artists/clinicians on stage. A noontime concert featuring Dana Hall and the South Suburban College Jazz Orchestra is sure to provide hot jazz on a chilly winter day.

All performances are open and free to the public. Come and see some outstanding young performers!
