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.
