ENTER YOUR SCHOOL’S JAZZ ENSEMBLE FOR A CHANCE TO WIN

Submit a compilation or live video of your pre-collegiate jazz ensemble performing a piece of jazz music for your group’s chance to win a private virtual clinic or masterclass (director’s choice) with the legendary Bob Mintzer - and a 52nd Street saxophone!

Only standard size, pre-collegiate school jazz ensembles (such as middle school, high school, comprehensive school, etc.) are eligible for entry; smaller groups such as combos, and professional groups, are excluded from entry. This is also a global competition, so ensembles from any country can enter.

COMPETITION DETAILS AND DATES

This year introduced new challenges in practicing together as a group, so we encourage you to send a compilation video composed from individual virtual performances! We will accept videos from groups learning virtually, as well as in-person.

Videos entries can be submitted between January 8 - April 15, 2021. A panel of Eastman Artist Judges will close judging in early May and the winner will be announced on social media and e-mail.
