Jazz bands from high schools throughout the state will converge at Newberry College on March 2, 2019, for the 62nd annual Newberry College Jazz Festival and 21st annual South Carolina Band Directors Association (SCBDA) Jazz Performance Assessment.

 

The Newberry College Jazz Festival is one of the longest consecutive running jazz festivals in the nation. The festival will include judge-rated performances and music workshops for the student ensembles participating in the SCBDA assessments.

 

The event features performances by the South Carolina All-State Jazz Band, South Carolina All-State Jazz Combo and the Newberry College Jazz Big Band with guest soloist Terell Stafford, a highly acclaimed trumpet player.

 

The All-State Jazz Band and All-State Jazz Combo will perform on the Newberry College campus at Wiles Chapel on Saturday, March 2, at 11:30 a.m., and 12:15 p.m., respectively. The Newberry College Jazz Big Band with guest soloist Chris Vadala (Saxophone), will perform at 1 p.m., also at Wiles Chapel. The concerts are free and open to the public.

 

The Newberry College Jazz Big Band, under the direction of Gatch, will be joined by saxophonist and recording artist Chris Vadala. Vadala is one of the country's foremost woodwind artists, he is in demand as a jazz/classical performer and educator. He has appeared on more than 100 recordings to date, as well as innumerable jingle sessions, film and TV scores, performing on all the saxophones, flutes, and clarinets. A native of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Vadala graduated from the Eastman School of Music, earning the honor of the Performer's Certificate in saxophone as well as a B.M. in Music Education, received an M.A. in clarinet from Connecticut College, and pursued postgraduate study in woodwinds at Eastman

 

In addition to serving as guest soloist, Vadala will speak with the student participants about his path to becoming both a concert performer and a jazz performer and how he has achieved success in both areas.

 

The Newberry College Jazz Festival was established in 1958 by long-time Newberry College band director Charles “Chief” Pruitt. It is one of the nation’s oldest continuing jazz festivals of its kind. Event organizer Dr. Jerry Gatch served as director of Bands at Lexington High School for 20 years before joining the Newberry College faculty in 2014.
