"Essentially Ellington" Jazz Band

Festival & Competition

May 7th -12th, 2024

The annual Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition & Festival is one of the most innovative jazz education events in the world. Each year, high school musicians from across North America travel to New York City to spend three days immersed in workshops, jam sessions, rehearsals, and performances at the “House of Swing,” Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center.


Our Bothell High School Jazz1 is one of just 15 bands selected as finalists this year. And this is the third year in a row following fourteen previous audition attempts by director Phil Dean!


Festival dates are May 9-May 11, 2024.
