Thank you to everyone who helped make our 40th Annual Frank Mantooth Jazz Festival Weekend such a memorable event. Over 40 schools participated in our non-competitive festival on Saturday, Feb 4 for a day of performances, inspiration, and learning. Our world-class clinicians shared their experience and wisdom, and Delfeayo Marsalis and the Uptown Jazz Orchestra capped off the day with their signature New Orleans party spirit.
On Sunday, Feb 5 we welcomed the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis! A truly unforgettable experience for our students and community, and a reminder of what deep humanity and integrity can sound like.
