Jazz Band at Berklee High School Jazz Festival

Congratulations to Scott Winship and the Jazz Band! They finished a respectable ninth out of sixteen bands in their division in the Berklee High School Jazz Festival on February 8th!



Berklee College of Music hosts its High School Jazz Festival at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. Berklee’s annual event is the largest of its kind in the United States, free, and open the public.

Big bands, combos, and vocal jazz ensembles perform and compete throughout the day. All ensembles are adjudicated by a panel of Berklee’s top faculty and will receive a written critique of their performance. Top-ranked ensembles will be awarded partial scholarships to Berklee’s Five Week Summer Performance Program, and individual students are invited to audition for tuition scholarships towards the full-time program or our Five Week Summer Performance Program.

The day’s events will also include performances by Berklee faculty, tours of Berklee’s campus, open jam sessions, and much more.

Ensembles can perform in competing categories determined by school size, or choose to participate in a non-competing category. All participating ensembles are adjudicated by a panel of Berklee’s top faculty and receive a written critique of their performance.
