Jack Rudin Jazz Championship

Competition Parts I & II (10:00am & 1:30pm)

This inaugural two-day competition features ensembles from ten of the most well-regarded university jazz programs in the country. The event will include a combo showcase in The Appel Room and a final concert featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in Rose Theater. Named for Jack Rudin, founding supporter of our signature Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition and Festival, this event will celebrate the excellence and achievements of the next generation of jazz musicians.

This two-part competition will feature all ten participating ensembles. Each part will showcase five performing ensembles, each presenting three tunes in front of Wynton Marsalis and a panel of esteemed judges, vying for a chance to perform in the evening concert and take home the grand prize.
