31 March and 1 April
We are very disappointed but due to COVID-19 alert level restrictions on gatherings the Tauranga Jazz Society has cancelled the rescheduled National Youth Jazz Competition. The first time this has happened in the 43 years of the Competition.
However, we are excited to announce that we are offering the school bands which had registered for the 2020 Competition a free VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP with Dr Rodger Fox.
Submit a video of your Combo and/or Big Band playing the 2020 Test Pieces – Mr P.C. for Combos and Groovemaker by Jeff Taylor for Big Bands.
Rodger Fox will view your videos and send you back a critique. This is not a competition but gives your students a goal to work towards.
Have your video emailed to us – [email protected] by 3 July 2020 – make it look and sound snappy because we would love to share it on our website!
Dates for 43rd National Youth Jazz Competition – 31 March and 1 April 2021
