About the UW Jazz Festival

Our goals for the UW Jazz Festival are simple: great music with outstanding and positive jazz education. These simple objectives promise to make this an enlightening and enjoyable experience for students, teachers, and audience members.

Jazz Festival highlights will include:
  • Outstanding line up of guest artists and clinicians: Dr. Lonnie Smith, organ, Tierney Sutton, voice, Paul Falk, voice, Kelsey Shiba, voice, Ed Breazeale, drums, Matt Smiley, bass, Josh Quinlan, saxophone, Dave Camwell, saxophone, and UW Jazz Faculty.
  • Student performances in the under renovation Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA) with easy bus drop off and pick up.
  • Reasonably priced Priority Registration fee of $100 per student group (registration must be complete by February 1 to receive Priority Registration fee).
  • Complimentary entrance for all performing students and teachers to the evening guest artist concerts.
We look forward to seeing and hearing you in March 2015. Let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for how we may serve you.

Most sincerely,


Ben Markley Dr. Ben Markley
