Important Notice!

Our 19th Edition Festival will not take place June 19-27 due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. We are working to reschedule the festival for fall 2020. Stay tuned!

Music Educators' Big Band

This is a standard–size big band and performs both traditional and contemporary literature written for large jazz ensemble.  Traditionally, the ensemble performs in December and May at Eastman’s Kilbourn Hall, and also on “Jazz Street” at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival in late June each year.  Other performances are scheduled when opportunities arise.  The band rehearses 3 or 4 times prior to each concert. Members commit to each concert according to their schedules.
