The Music Department of Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC) will host the 13th annual Lewis and Clark Jazz Festival on February 25 and 26 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Sioux City Campus, 4647 Stone Ave.
This is a free public event that provides middle and high school students from Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota with the opportunity to experience jazz music through spirited competitions.
Vocal jazz competitions will be held in L416/417, and instrumental jazz competitions will be held in the Rocklin Conference Center. WITCC hosts the event to give students an opportunity to perform and receive feedback. Trophies are awarded for first through third place in each class. Awards are also given for outstanding soloists.
The audio engineering program at WITCC will provide sound and recording services for the festival and WITCC’s concert choir offers assistance for directors, ensembles, and audience members from check-in to campus guides.
