The Temple College Jazz Festival is open to all college, high school and middle school big bands, combos, vocal jazz ensembles and show choirs.


The Temple College Jazz Festival is a non-competitive event, offering directors the option to receive a confidential rating. All performance groups will receive adjudicated digital and written comments of their performance. Each performing ensemble will receive a 20-25 minute clinic with one of their adjudicators immediately following their performance. The total time on and off stage for each ensemble is 30 minutes. Internationally-known educators and performers will conduct clinics and seminars during the day.


Each group registration fee of $300 includes unlimited access to all clinics and adjudicated performances by other participants. Student participants and directors will also receive free tickets to the evening concerts. Directors should request tickets, for participants only, at the time of their check-in at the festival office.
