Swing Central Jazz: Jazz on the River

Now in its 14th year, Swing Central Jazz brings more than 300 high school students from across the United States to Savannah to work with some of the nation’s finest jazz performers and educators under the direction of SMF Associate Artistic Director and pianist Marcus Roberts. Join the country’s 12 most talented high school jazz orchestras in this free open-air showcase with River Street and the Savannah River as backdrops.

Swing Central Jazz culminates in a daylong competition on Friday, April 3 and a finale concert in which the three winning bands show off their skills before the program’s clinicians join Marcus Roberts for a concert program dedicated to the birthplace of jazz: New Orleans.
