January 24, 2019

From: Reno Jazz Festival

Greetings and welcome to the 57th annual Reno Jazz Festival.

As always, we will also be presenting many workshops with some of the finest clinicians and performers in the country. With more than 300 school groups, up to 10,000 participants, and 60 clinicians, performers, and adjudicators, we continue to strive to ensure that every guest participant leaves with greater knowledge, appreciation, and love of music and the world of jazz.

The Reno Jazz Festival is a massive undertaking, and it would not be possible without help from all of our co-sponsors and volunteers. Special thanks to the National Endowment for the Arts, Nevada Arts Council, City of Reno, our host hotel Circus Circus Reno, CLM Design, Steinway Gallery, Absolute Music, Greenbrae Trophy, and to our own University of Nevada, Reno for its unfailing support over the past three decades, especially from the School of the Arts and College of Liberal Arts.
