The Katy Jazz Festival is affiliated with Music For All, one of the largest and most influential national music education organizations in support of active music making.
The Katy Jazz Festival is a unique opportunity for student jazz ensembles of all varieties to come perform in an outstanding venue in front of our guest professional jazz musicians that have come from all over the world. The student ensembles will then get the honor of having a one-on-one clinic and workshop with these jazz professionals. Additionally, all students will get to have further learning opportunities with our jazz professionals in instrument specific master classes throughout the day, and the festival will culminate with a once-in-a-lifetime evening concert for all attendees featuring our jazz professionals.
