Co-sponsored with the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) , the All City Jazz Band Festival is designed to promote and showcase young Chicago jazz talent. Over 25 large ensembles and combos from around the city are professionally adjudicated, and the highest scoring ensembles have the opportunity to perform at the Chicago Jazz Festival at the Chicago Community Trust Young Jazz Lions Pavilion. One ensemble is also selected to perform with a Composer-in-Residence during their performance. Participation is limited to Chicago Public School music programs.
