“West Chester University has enjoyed a long history and commitment to great jazz programming,” said Marc Jacoby, Director of Jazz Studies at West Chester University and the curator for the 2019 Jazz Festival. “Our own faculty jazz group, as well as our beloved student jazz ensemble, the Criterions, are among the many points of pride for the Wells School of Music. As well, our annual Jazz Festival, now in its 30th year, invites members of the community onto our campus to enjoy some of the finest jazz artists from our region and beyond, programmed in our top-notch facilities, for free.
“We want the community to take full advantage of these offerings, and to share in our excitement for this fantastic programming.”
