Essentially Ellington Jazz Festival

New York, NY

May 5th - 7th, 2022

Dear Friends, Family, and Community!


We are thrilled to announce that Noblesville High School Jazz 1 has been named a FINALIST for the national Essentially Ellington Festival, known as the "Super Bowl" of Jazz Festivals! This event is held at New York City's Jazz at Lincoln Center, and includes the top 15 bands from the USA and Canada. This is the second consecutive year that NHS Jazz 1 has qualified for this elite jazz competition, and one of only five bands to do so. 


Our goal is to raise enough money to cover the trip expenses for our 25 students and staff for airfare, transportation, hotels, food, and a few special activities in New York City. This is a dream come true for the Noblesville Jazz Program, as we've been working toward this moment for a decade. Thank you for partnering with this incredible group of students as we represent our music department, Noblesville High School, and the city of Noblesville on this national stage!
