Hosted by UD's Department of Fine and Performing Arts, the festival will offer students a day of musical activities including the opportunity for each high school jazz band to hold an interactive rehearsal with clinicians. The clinicians are James Dreier, MA, emeritus professor of instruction in jazz students at the University of Iowa, and Steve Citta, retired director of bands at Waterloo West High School and Waterloo Community Schools.

The festival will conclude when the jazz band students attend a public performance by the Cab Calloway Orchestra at 7:30 p.m. in John and Alice Butler Hall, Heritage Center. For more information about the orchestra or to purchase tickets, please visit www.dbq.edu/HeritageCenter.
