Stage Time: Maximum stage time will be 25 minutes.  A warm-up room will be available 30 minutes in advance of your performance time.  Please limit your performance to three selections (approximately 15-20 minutes).  This will allow the clinicians time to give a short verbal critique and work with your band.  All ensembles will receive written comments from the clinicians.

Registration Deadline:  February 1, 2020.  Performance positions will be filled on a first-come, first served basis.  Send completed registration form together with a $100 registration fee (made out to Elon University Jazz Festival) to Rusty Smith, Music Department, 2800 Campus Box, Elon University, Elon, NC 27244.  You can also email forms to and mail the check separately.
