The All-State Jazz Band festival will be held in conjunction with the Alabama Music Educators Association In-Service
Conference at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) on January 20-22, 2022. Students are invited to submit audition recordings in order to be considered for the All-State Jazz Band. Selection for the Alabama All-State Jazz Bands is determined by a recorded audition that students prepare and their director sends to the Alabama Bandmasters Association (ABA) Jazz Division. A qualified panel of adjudicators will be judging student recordings. Band directors will be notified of the selected students approximately three weeks after the deadline. Directors must be members of NAfME in order for their students to audition and participate in the All-State Jazz Bands.
