Liberal Arts Jazz Festival
The Liberal Arts Jazz Festival is designed to provide small liberal arts colleges and select high school jazz bands a unique educational opporunity to perform for a group of jazz professionals serving as guest clinicians in a positive and supportive environment. The clinicians then spend time rehearsing each participating jazz ensemble and helping them to grow as musicians. The event culminates in an evening performance by the clinicians. The Liberal Arts Jazz Festival is co-hosted by Albion College and Hillsdale College, with each school taking turns as host. Albion College hosts on even years - 2014, 2016, etc.
