Western States Jazz Festival, with guest, Christine Jensen

Upland Jazz is proud to be hosting the 49th annual Western States Jazz Festival this Saturday February 25. All proceeds go to support the band & color guard program at Upland High School. They look forward to seeing you at the festival!

Schools from all over Southern California attend the jazz festival every year, and most send more than one band to compete at this premier event. Check out Participating Schools.

This year’s special guest star, Christine Jensen, is a Montreal-based saxophonist, described by the Globe and Mail as “​​one of Canada’s most compelling composers.”
