The 2017 DeMiero Jazz Fest
was a great success
THANK YOU from Frank and Dee
What an incredible 2017 DeMiero Jazz Fest!!! Every facet, every event, every performance at this year’s festival was magical to the tenth power. On behalf of DJF, we want to thank all of our sponsors, the participating schools, our guest artists, clinicians, two scholarship recipients, sound technicians, volunteers, ECA staff, the DJF Board and Officers, and YOU… who came out to witness the magic of Jazz Music this year. It was a marvelously inspiring, creative, and informative experience. We look forward to the 2018 festival. Visit our website often for updates and information throughout the year. In the meantime, we’re sending out wishes for a swinging year.
We have a stellar lineup of guest artists and world class professional clinicians who will work for three intense days with over 60 choirs. You won’t want to miss the evening concerts on March 2nd and 3rd. Take advantage of the opportunity to observe the future of vocal jazz as students from elementary to high school, college to community choirs work with world-class professionals during the three days of clinics, workshops and master classes. These daytime events are free to the public, and are being held at the Edmonds Center for the Arts and the North Sound Community Church in Edmonds, WA (just north of Seattle). After dinner, join us for fabulous evening concerts , starting at 7:00 PM nightly at the Edmonds Center for the Arts. Tickets are $25 for students and $35 for adults (VIP Preferred tickets are $70 and include 1 evening concert, preferential seating and entry to the VIP Reception after the show.) Mark the dates on your calendar now!
Volunteers and Donations Needed!
It’s not just a coincidence that the DeMiero Jazz Fest returns year after year to inspire student musicians to bring their best while working with the top performers in the field. You can be one of more than 100 volunteers who help create this amazing experience. For more information about volunteering, see our Volunteer page.
As a nonprofit, the Jazz Fest relies on donations to make everything possible. We keep registration fees low, so many schools can participate, so we must raise approximately half of the money we need to operate from donations and sponsorships. Please consider a generous, tax-deductible* donation or sponsorship! You may click here to donate online, or send a check to:
