The largest event of its kind in the nation, the UNC/Greeley Jazz Festival brings together internationally recognized artists, jazz lovers, award-winning clinicians, and over 250 college, high school, and middle school big bands, combos, and jazz vocal groups from across the country. Each year, over 7,500 participants enjoy main stage concerts, after-hours sessions, non-competitive daytime performances, and educational workshops.
Through The Looking-Glass – Celebrating the past and looking to the future, with new and familiar journeys into the fantastical world of jazz. From the towering notes of Wayne Bergeron to the electronic improvisations of Ingrid Jensen, the 100th year of Charlie Parker to the elegant sound of the Swingle Singers, this proves to be a lineup and educational experience to remember.
