Mizzou Virtual Jazz Fest -  Although we are unable to offer our traditional in-person jazz festival, this year we are hosting a virtual festival to still provide your students with a meaningful experience! Open to middle and high school groups and no registration fee required. The components of this year’s festival include: 1) Feedback/commentary provided over the recordings submitted by your group; 2) Group Zoom (or Skype) sessions on February 26th or February 27th (if your schedule permits); and 3) One song from each group chosen to be featured in a compilation premiered virtually on February 27th as an end-of-festival "concert.”

If you are interested in participating, please complete the following REGISTRATION FORM by February 1st. Those who register will receive a second follow up form that details how to submit recordings. Recordings will be due by February 15th.

MU Bands Virtual Outreach Initiative - Given that school ensembles and music students across Missouri are experiencing various types of in-person and online learning this coming academic year, the band directors at the University of Missouri want to make ourselves available to help your students, program, or school district in these difficult and unprecedented circumstances. At your request (and schedules permitting), we would enjoy the opportunity to present a virtual clinic on a variety of topics. If you are interested in scheduling a virtual session, please reach out to any of our band faculty (Dr. Brian A. Silvey, Dr. Amy M. Knopps, or Dr. Christian M. Noon).
