The New Trier Jazz Festival has been copied, but never duplicated! 

Our festival was the first high school festival to...

To offer scholarships to summer jazz camps to outstanding students ($96,000 in total  scholarships actually used by students to attend camps with over 15 camps participating in our awards program)...

To be broadcast live on the INTERNET and television/radio for more than 14 hours...

To have a website with ONLINE registration...

To provide a sight-reading big band for all festival participants...

To provide bands that perform on stage a CD of their performance mixed using more than 38 microphones...

To be completely paperless, thus making communication with directors faster and more accurate...

To provide workshops on careers in music and other special interest topics...

Annual evening concerts by the world's greatest jazz big bands from far outside of the Chicago area (to see the list)...

...and many more special offerings for almost a quarter century!

Our festival has been called by Downbeat magazine, "Perhaps the most educational high school jazz festival anywhere."



The New Trier Jazz Festival was started in 1982 to help keep the tradition of Big Band Jazz alive.  Using a non-competitive format, the four primary purposes of the festival are to provide high school and junior high jazz musicians with...

  • An opportunity to perform for, and be critiqued by, some of this country's most outstanding jazz  educators;

  • An opportunity to attend clinics on performance techniques, music careers, jazz improvisation, and other topics of interest by leading jazz professionals;

  • An opportunity for student musicians to be individually recognized by the awarding of certificates and other awards;

  • An opportunity to attend concerts by some of the world's greatest jazz artists and big bands.
