The EHSEU Jazz I and Jazz II bands participate in the Reno Jazz Festival held each year at the University of Nevada, Reno, NV in the spring. The dates for the 2015 jazz festival are April 23-26 (students will miss school on April 23 and 24). Considered one of the best of its kind in the world, and lauded by the San Francisco Chronicle as “showcasing music’s future,” the Reno Jazz Festival has been hosting jazz superstars and the finest emerging young artists for over five decades. Celebrating 53 years of jazz, 1962-2015, the Festival hosts three days of concerts, clinics and competitions on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. The festival also acts as an educational venue for some of the country’s most talented middle school, high school and college-age musicians, as thousands compete with their school bands, vocal groups and ensembles from around the Western states. The three-day festival culminates in a showcase concert and awards ceremony to honor the best and brightest young standouts.
