Green Bay Jazz Fest
In 2021, we welcomed Brass Differential, a local band whose sound is steeped in New Orleans tradition with musical styles including jazz, blues, funk, R&B, soul and hip-hop. Unlike other bands in their genre, they feature a horn-centered sound. They performed on March 27, 2021, and you can watch it on our Youtube channel.
If you are a band director and would like to feature your band on our YouTube channel in the days leading up to Jazz Fest, please contact Adam Gaines at email@example.com.
Next Jazz Fest is coming up in Spring 2023; don't miss it. Stay tuned!
Solo & Ensembles Festivals
The Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) hosts the Solo & Ensemble Festivals, which draw more than 100,000 students every year and represent the top talent across Wisconsin’s high schools. UW-Green Bay is the site for the northeastern Wisconsin event each spring, welcoming thousands of students from throughout the area.
UW-Green Bay is also the site for the WSMA Jazz and Large Ensemble Festival. This is for any state qualified jazz or large ensemble regardless of assigned State Festival Site. Festival start and end times will vary based on number of events. Each performing group receives written comments, as well as clinic time with a WSMA-assigned clinician. Contact WSMA with questions about participating at this festival.
Dates, site information and results for both festivals will be listed below as available.
