Each year in February, the music department holds its annual high school invitational jazz festival, taking place in the music department at Central Campus. Area high school jazz bands are invited to Salem State for a day of workshops and an evening performance in the recital hall. Students will have the opportunity to work with instructors who are proficient in jazz studies and techniques. Past participants have included Salem High School, Ipswich High School, Masconomet High School, Lynn Classical, and others.
This year's invitational will take place on Saturday, March 4, 2017. For more information on participating in this year's Invitational, please contact Tom Palance or call the music department at 978.542.6296.
