Southern Jam Youth Jazz Festival

🎺🎷Southern Jam Youth Jazz Festival ONLINE! 🎺🎷

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Southern Jam Youth Jazz Festival is unable to continue in its usual format this year. Bands will be unable to gather together here in beautiful Marlborough to compete, perform, and learn from professional musicians. However, we are thrilled that we are able to offer an alternative for our dedicated and committed young Jazz musicians this year.

In lieu of our usual competition here in Marlborough, Dr Rodger Fox from the New Zealand School of Music who was to head our judging team this year has kindly offered an exciting alternative - an online feedback forum! Over the coming months, bands will be submitting videos of their performances for Dr Fox to review and provide tips and feedback that we hope will prove useful for next years competition when we can perform together in person again.

We also have some great spot prizes up for grabs which would not have been possible without the support of our main sponsor KBB Music, to whom we are incredibly grateful.

Schools are busy rehearsing, and we can't wait to see all of our talented youth performing, albeit not in the format we had originally anticipated this year.

The countdown in on for Southern Jam 2021!

Southern Jam Youth Jazz Festival 2021
Tuesday 3rd August - Saturday 7th August 2021
Southern Jam is the only event of its kind in the South Island: it’s a great opportunity for young musicians to learn from other great, well respected musicians; and for you to be among the first to experience the South Island’s next wave of musical talent.

With numerous public performances throughout the Marlborough Region, there will be plenty of opportunities for the public to enjoy some live jazz, and marvel in the immense talent that travels from far and wide each year. The Public Performance schedule will be posted in the months prior to the event. 

Look forward to the Gala Concert at the ASB Theatre on Saturday night featuring the 2021 All Stars band, composed of the top musicians in the South Island.
