National Youth Jazz Competition

Baycourt Community and Arts Centre
The Big Band and Jazz Combo will travel to Tauranga to compete in the 44th National Youth Jazz Competition as part of the National Jazz Festival on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 June.
This year features a record number of schools and bands entering the competition. 21 Big Bands and 34 Combos will share the stage across the three days of competition. For many of our musicians, it will be their first performance on a professional stage with an audience full of experienced musicians. Both groups have had a history of success at the competition, picking up Gold awards and some individual ones over the last 6 years.
Both groups perform on Tuesday 21 June. Livestream links and more details can be found here.
