The 57th Fiesta Jazz Band Festival on Saturday, April 27, is San Antonio's oldest educational jazz festival. We attract junior and senior high school jazz ensembles from Texas and neighboring states. Participants perform for criticism before a panel of renowned jazz clinicians. Trophies and awards are given for outstanding performances in various categories. Special jazz clinics take place through the day including a mid-day clinic by the Fiesta Jazz Artist. This event offers a unique educational and music performance experience and at the same time it gives the Fiesta audience and the San Antonio community an admission free family event.
