YAA The Off Beats will be attending the 8th Annual Newbury Park High School Jazz Festival on Saturday, March 19, 2016.
According to the NPHS music department website, they “have managed to secure some of the best adjudicators and clinicians from all over the country to come here for a full day of performances and concerts all geared to inspire and educate students as they grow musically.”
The Jazz Fest is “a regional competition for school bands who come from all over the southland to showcase their talents in various divisions, including Jazz Combo, Middle School and High School Big Bands. Each group will perform a 30 minute set for a panel of judges and then receive written and recorded feedback as well as a post-performance clinic with one of the judges.”
Festival goers will have the opportunity to hear the Cal State Northridge Jazz “A” Band, featuring Chuck Findley on trumpet.
