ABOUT THE FESTIVAL?
ANDRE HAYWARD, PROFESSIONAL TROMBONIST
I can’t express enough the wonderful time I had participating in this year’s Katy Jazz Festival. All the bands sounded wonderful and the kids were so much fun to work with. I’m happy to know that the band booster parents, Katy ISD, public officials, and band directors are on point making sure the arts stay in the forefront.

Big things happen in Katy, Texas, and the Katy Jazz Festival is certainly one of the best! Great music, great people, and an opportunity to impact lives in a positive, uplifting way. Don't miss the next one!
BRAD LEALI, PROFESSIONAL SAXOPHONIST AND JAZZ PROFESSOR AT UNIVERSITY OF
The dedication of Katy ISD and the City of Katy in supporting their jazz programs are nothing short of AMAZING. The Katy Jazz Festival was an incredible example of this. They should be a role model for all school districts and communities.
BOB HENSCHEN, PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN
Congratulations on another well-run and very impressive jazz event. I know it especially means a lot to the many students who perform there and get to take in the fine performances. I also know how much work you folks put into it! It was an honor and a pleasure to perform at the Katy Jazz Festival.
BOB, FESTIVAL ATTENDANT
I just had to tell you that you guys really outdid yourselves this year with the Katy Jazz Festival. What an unbelievable event it was! Every performance I heard was excellent, the show flowed flawlessly, the volunteers were wonderful and the musicians were accessible and friendly.
The Katy Jazz Festival, as always, is extremely impressive and enjoyable. I doubt if the kids who attend it realize how lucky they are to get to do such a thing. All my best to you.
