The annual Berklee High School Jazz Festival is taking place on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston's Back Bay.
The largest event of its kind in the United States, the festival is free and open to the public.
The festival features big bands, combos, and vocal jazz ensembles from around the U.S. and other countries performing and competing throughout the day.
All ensembles are adjudicated by a panel of Berklee’s top faculty and will receive a written critique of their performance. Top-ranked ensembles will be awarded partial scholarships to Berklee’s FiveWeek Summer Performance Program, and individual students are invited to audition for tuition scholarships towards the full-time program or our Five Week Summer Performance Program.
Here are details on the awards.
