FRANK MANTOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL AT
NEW TRIER HIGH SCHOOL
Saturday, Feb. 9, 2008

Our 25th HIGHLY NON-COMPETITIVE Festival

ONLY HIT IT THE SUBMIT BUTTON ONE TIME SINCE IT TAKES A FEW SECONDS TO SEND.
YOU WILL SOON SEE A
"Successfully Submitted"
PAGE.  

The SUBMIT button is active
UNTIL MONDAY NIGHT at 10 pm. on Oct. 1, 
only for directors who promise to donate 
at least $400 worth of instruments in good
playing condition to schools
in New Orleans.

All FREE pre-registrations are taken.

MORE BANDS CAN PRE-REGISTER AND DONATE INSTRUMENTS, 
BUT WILL HAVE TO PAY
THE $200 REGISTRATION FEE.


Anyone not wishing to donate used instruments and pre-registering  for the
Jazzfest must wait until
9 a.m. on Tuesday, October 2, 2007.

If you have a problem or question,
CALL MY CELLPHONE at 630-479-0001

SEE THE LIST OF SCHOOLS THAT
HAVE ALREADY PRE-REGISTERED
AND WILL BE DONATING AT LEAST
$400 OF INSTRUMENTS.

PRE-REGISTRATION
AGREEMENT

"My jazz ensemble or my students
 WILL donate at least $400 of instruments
 in good playing condition to the schools in New Orleans for the New Trier Jazz Ensemble to deliver on our behalf."

"I understand that as the band director, I will be
responsible for determining the value and 
playing condition of the instruments
we donate based on my professional experience, 
and that those instruments will, in my opinion, 
be considered in "good playing condition" 
and worth a total of at least $400." 
(Donations in excess of $400 are welcome!)

"I understand that we must comply with the "rules" of 
the Frank Mantooth Jazz Festival,  
especially as those "rules" relates to our band being a "second or third" band from a school with more 
than one jazz ensemble, 
OR an "inexperienced First and ONLY band"

"I understand that if we fail to donate $400 worth of
instruments in good playing condition on or by
February 9, 2008 (the day of the Festival), then we will be responsible for paying $400 to the Jazz Festival organizers that they will use to purchase $400 worth of instruments"

"YES, I agree"

   "
NO, I don't agree to donate instruments. 
I will wait until Oct. 2, 2007, at 9 a.m. 
to register for the Mantooth Jazzfest"


ONLINE School Application Form


The first group of high school jazz ensembles to be accepted will be second or "third" ensembles from schools with more than one jazz ensemble. THOSE GROUPS HAVE PRIORITY FOR SELECTION. (Only one jazz ensemble per school will be accepted.) Performance times not taken by these second or "third" ensembles will be reserved for inexperienced first and only ensembles accepted in the order of the transmission time this application was submitted.  If your school has more than one ensemble, your "first" ensemble may not participate. (Any junior group can participate.)

APPLICATIONS THAT ARE INCORRECTLY COMPLETED WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DIRECTOR. EVERY YEAR WE HAVE A FEW SCHOOLS THAT ARE DISQUALIFIED BECAUSE THEIR APPLICATIONS SAID THAT THE APPLYING BAND WAS "1st and Only", BUT THE DIRECTOR SAID ON THE FORM THAT THERE WERE MORE THAN ONE JAZZ ENSEMBLE IN THE MUSIC PROGRAM. These applications were discarded since it is impractical for us to contact everyone for clarification.

Just to be clear.... It is important that forms be completed correctly. Forms will be discarded from schools who's director identifies their applying band as "Inexperienced first or only jazz ensemble", but who enter more than one jazz ensemble in response to the question, "Number of jazz ensembles in your school's music department?" No attempt will be made to contact a director to verify the correctness of any form and it is up to the directors to decide if their "1st and only" band is "inexperienced" enough to participate in our festival.

SCHOOLS MAY ONLY BRING ONE BAND TO PERFORM IN OUR FESTIVAL. (You may bring additional bands or students to observe for FREE, but those students will be charged full price for their evening concert ticket.)

WE NEED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION NOW SINCE TICKETS GO ON SALE SOON. WE NEED TO KNOW IF YOU ARE STAYING FOR THE EVENING CONCERT, AND THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF TICKETS YOU WILL NEED TO AVOID OVERSELLING THE AUDITORIUM. (Last year all 1,550 tickets were sold by late November.) You can adjust your total number DOWN later, give us the maximum number of tickets you will need NOW. (You cannot ask for more tickets later, only fewer than you list below.)

We must limit the number of REDUCED PRICE EVENING CONCERT TICKETS ($18) we can sell to our guest schools to the number of students actually performing, and chaperone(s). We will still provide one complimentary director ticket. We cannot accommodate evening concert requests for reduced price tickets to bring additional non-performing bands or additional non-performing students from one school. Those non-performing students are welcome to attend the free daytime clinics and concerts, but if they wish to attend the evening concert they must pay for a full price ($25) a ticket. Those tickets must be ordered using this online application.

WILL YOUR GROUP STAY FOR THE EVENING CONCERT?
YES
NO

If so, how many REDUCED PRICE tickets @ $18 each to see THE CHICAGO JAZZ ENSEMBLE directed by JON FADDIS will you be ordering for your PERFORMING students and chaperones to attend the evening concert? (Note: The actual ticket order and money will not be required until December 1. Slight changes in the number of tickets DOWNWARD you order now are possible at that time. Tickets for the general public are $25 each.)

MAXIMUM quantity of REDUCED PRICE tickets @ $18 each for your PERFORMING STUDENTS/chaperones your school will need. (Include a director's complimentary ticket in this total.) This number can be reduced later if necessary. IT CANNOT BE INCREASED LATER.

MAXIMUM quantity of FULL PRICE TICKETS @ $25 each for your NON-PERFORMING STUDENTS/ADULTS your school will need. This number can be reduced later if necessary. IT CANNOT BE INCREASED LATER.

Estimate the driving time from your school to New Trier High School in Winnetka. (Example- 1.3 hours  Note: Schools closer to Winnetka or those staying in hotels in the area will be scheduled to perform earlier in the day.):

hours

Do not mail your participation fee with this form. You will be billed according to your performance location. 

A request for a full refund of the participation fee must be received in writing by schools that withdraw prior to January 15, 2008. Schools withdrawing after that date will forfeit the entire fee.

FEES TO BE BILLED (and paid by November 1, 2007):

Since all stage spaces are taken by schools who pre-registered donating used instruments to NOLA, there is only one performance fee this year... 

  • $225 fee to help cover your ensemble's clinic expenses if you perform anywhere other than on the stage. (All junior high groups perform in the Student Lounge.)

Check your information carefully.  Every year there are several bands who are disqualified because the submitted application said that the applying band and was "1st and Only", but later in the form the director said there was more than one jazz ensemble in the school.

"SUBMIT"  ONE TIME.
