Jazz Blues & Beyond Music Festival 2018

With spring in the air, music and the arts come into bloom.  In the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), special event performances, both in and out of school, are in high demand. . Music and Entertainment Education continues to move full throttle to offer a calendar of exceptional festivals to choose from.

The Sixth Annual “Jazz, Blues and Beyond Festival,” will be held on April 28 at the Santee Learning Complex.  Seventeen District jazz groups will perform in front of a panel of professional jazz educators and performers who provide valuable feedback on their performances. This will be an exciting day for all participants as we celebrate “Jazz Appreciation Month.”

The Beyond the Bell (BTB) Annual “Drumline Invitational” will take place at John F. Kennedy High School on May 12.  There will be 10 drumlines “strutting their stuff.”  Schools look forward to this event with its fast paced action, storytelling, and showmanship. These drumlines will really produce!

Roosevelt High School will host the “Mariachi Invitational” on May 19.  This event features several District mariachi groups performing before a panel of adjudicators. BTB-MEE co-produced this event for the last two years.  This year, BTB-MEE will take the lead supporting the various District groups.

All three special events are open to the public. For more information, please contact Beyond the Bell at btb@lausd.net or 213-241-7900
