Elmhurst College Jazz FestivalThe Elmhurst College Jazz Festival provides college bands with an exceptional opportunity to learn from today’s top professional jazz musicians. Audiences can attend outstanding performances by college bands and top jazz performers.

The Elmhurst College Jazz Festival traces its roots back to the American College Jazz Festival, which was established in 1968. The original festival was held at venues across the United States, including Elmhurst College. A winning band, combo and vocalist was chosen from each regional festival. The winners then performed at a national event on Memorial Day weekend.

The national festival disbanded in 1973, but the Elmhurst College Jazz Festival has flourished. Today, it has grown in size and reputation. We know you’ll enjoy this great event, so make plans to attend.
