Hang posters and get the word out about our finals concert.  We can sell 200+ tickets, which will go a long way towards helping to cover our jazz expenses for the year.

Stage & Guest Artist Host

Audio & Equipment Tech


An experienced student or adult is needed to help with microphones, drumset, amp, and sound levels throughout the student performances.  Please ensure microphones are in position for each group, and that student horn players know to play into them.  This person will also monitor microphone levels throughout the day, so everything sounds good.

Clean Up


Many hands make light work.  About ten sturdy people are needed to split up into teams of 2-3 to clean up each room used, and to make sure that all the classrooms are left exactly as they were before the festival.  A few people need to return desks to their original place, and 1-2 people need to help put the band room back into working order.
