Capping off a full day of clinics for high school jazz bands from around the region is this annual festival’s evening concert. The concert features each of the participating jazz bands performing with the Festival’s professional clinicians, all under the masterful guidance of Sun Prairie High School’s awesome band director, Steve Sveum. This year’s clinicians include:
* Trumpeters Dave Cooper and Marty Robinson,
* Saxophonists Dan Wallach, Doug Stone, and Bill Sears,
* Trombonists Steve Horne and Chris Dorsey,
* Guitarist Rick Haydon,
* Pianist Reggie Thomas,
* Bassist Jeff Campbell, and
* Drummer Steve FIdyk.
In addition to the ensemble from host Sun Prairie High School, this year’s participating high school bands come from Concord and Champaign IL, and from Columbus, Fond du Lac, Mt. Horeb, Waunakee and West DePere WI.
Tickets are $10 adult, and $5 for students and seniors, and will be sold at the door only.
