Calvin Jones BIG BAND Jazz Festival

Celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month at the University of the District of Columbia

On April 24, 2017 at 8pm, the Calvin Jones BIG BAND Jazz Festival celebrates thirty-one years of world-class jazz at the University of the District of Columbia. Once again the powerhouse jazz ensembles from the University of the District of Columbia (directed by Allyn Johnson), Howard University (directed by Fred Irby III), and the University of Maryland (directed by Chris Vadala) cap off Jazz Appreciation Month with a hand-clapping, finger-snapping, foot-stomping good time.

Produced by the University of the District of Columbia Jazz Studies Program and the Felix E. Grant Jazz Archives, the festival began in 1987 as part of a citywide tribute to Duke Ellington, and it remains one of the most anticipated events on Washington, D.C.’s jazz calendar.

Tickets are $20 (general admission), $15 (seniors), and $10 (students)
