About the Princeton Jazz Festival

The 2017 Princeton Jazz Festival will be held in the Princeton High School Performing Arts Center on April 28th and 29th.  This two day event will feature a middle school competition on Friday, April 28th and a high school competition on Saturday, April 29th.  In addition to leading education clinics for all festival participants, Randy Brecker and Ada Ravotti will perform both evenings with the award winning Princeton Studio Band!

The Princeton Jazz Festival is held every spring at Princeton High School and always features an outstanding guest artist/clinician.  The festival is the largest educational jazz festival in the State of New Jersey and includes performances from over 700 middle school and high school jazz musicians annually.

This year is the 11th Annual Princeton Jazz Festival.  Below is a list of our outstanding past guest artists and clinicians that helped make our festival what it is today!
