57th Annual Elmhurst University Jazz Festival

Looks like this event has already taken place.

190 South Prospect Avenue, Elmhurst, IL 60126

The Elmhurst University Jazz Festival returns for its 57th year, both in-person and live-streamed online!

Chicago Magazine once hailed the Elmhurst University Jazz Festival as “one of the best buys for your jazz dollars,” and it’s easy to see why.

Each February, the best college jazz bands in the country converge on the Elmhurst campus for three days of performances and education. The bands take turns performing for some of the greatest names in professional jazz today, who offer critiques and award a variety of honors. The professionals cap off each night of the Festival with a rousing performance of their own.

For the college bands, the Festival offers a great opportunity to learn from some of today’s greatest jazz musicians. For the audience, it’s a chance to hear both college bands and jazz greats.
