Welcome to the 43rd Annual Fullerton College Jazz Festival! We’d like to thank all of you music directors for the wonderful contributions you’ve made to jazz music in our schools. You spend countless hours rehearsing your students and other behind-the-scene preparations in order to take them to festivals, workshops, community events, and concerts. We know you have a lot of options to choose from and we are genuinely thankful for and appreciative of your continued support and loyalty to our educational festival!
We have jam-packed days filled with school performances, outdoor concerts, awards ceremonies, and master classes by absolutely stellar clinicians. We’d also like to remind you that our premiere, award-winning jazz ensembles will be performing at the featured noon concerts in the Campus Theatre – JTrain on Friday and The FC Big Band on Saturday. Each day’s event will conclude with a concert featuring FC’s Faculty Jazz Cadre, featuring Jamie Shew (vocal), Bruce Babad (saxophones), Joe Jewell (guitar), Mike Scott (guitar), Roger Shew (bass), and Matt Johnson (drums). We hope you consider staying for the entire day to support one another and take part in the many opportunities our festival offers.
