Jazz Combo Day is for individual high school jazz players. It gives you the opportunity to play with the area's best high school musicians and to meet accomplished NIU faculty members and guest artists. The event takes place in the Music Building.
You must audition or be invited in order to attend. If accepted, you will participate in one of several combos at the event. The day includes a dinner, followed by performances by the student combos. The event ends with a concert by NIU faculty members.
Payment is due two weeks before the event. This event is limited to 65 players.
An audition is required. Submit an audio recording of your playing and the audition application form. There is no audition fee. After you receive notification of acceptance, submit a registration form as soon as possible.
Please note: You do not need to audition if you attended Jazz Combo Day last year. Simply send in your registration form.
