Algonquin will play host to the Massachusetts Association for Jazz Education Jazz Festival tomorrow. The competition will see groups from over 70 public and private schools in Central Mass perform, including the Algonquin Jazz I and Jazz II ensembles.
The ensembles will perform before a panel of professional jazz artists and educators who will award gold, silver, and bronze ratings. The groups will have a chance to move on to the state festival depending on their performance at districts.
Both Algonquin jazz ensembles received silver medals at last year’s festival.
The festival runs from 3:00 to 9:30 pm on Wednesday, and is open to the public. Algonquin Jazz II is scheduled to perform at 4:00 pm, and Jazz I at 8:30 pm.
