John Clayton Jazz
Loyola Jazz Festival – Friday and Saturday March 2nd and 3rd, 2018

Bring your student musicians to a great educational festival experience in the birthplace of jazz!

I am pleased to announce that bassist/bloyola-new-orleans-jazz-1and leader/ and arranger John Clayton will be the guest artist and clinician for the 2018 Loyola University Jazz Ensemble Festival. The festival is open to big bands or jazz combos from the Elementary through College level.  A panel of expert musician/educators will be available Friday and Saturday to adjudicate your group. One of these educators will give your group a clinic immediately following their performance. Groups that receive all I’s for their performance will receive a plaque. You can also select no rating if you want comments only. Outstanding Musician Awards will be given to exceptional student soloists, arrangers or section leaders. Scholarships to the Loyola University Summer Jazz Camp will also be awarded. Included with the Loyola Festival on both Friday and Saturday at 12:30 p.m. are FREE Master Classes for all instruments, taught by John Clayton and the Loyola Jazz Faculty.
