Rule Change

Finally, as a result of good feedback we received from last year’s festival, there will be 2 rule changes for the National Jazz Festival that will go into effect for 2021 and beyond:-

– Schools will be placed in performance divisions strictly by school population.  Schools that enter more than 1 ensemble in the NJF will compete in the same performance division.

 All divisions will be adjudicated by 3 judges instead of 2.
