On Saturday, February 7, 2015, both Centennial jazz bands will perform at the Urbandale Jazz Colloquium at Urbandale High School (7111 Aurora Ave, Urbandale). The philosophy of the Colloquium is that all ensembles should have a large audience during their performance. As such, ensembles are scheduled in groups of 4 with the requirement that an ensemble watch all 4 ensembles in one group. Each ensemble also receives a 90 minute clinic with one of four top adjudicators. Jazz Collective and Jazz Studio will perform in separate groups.

Dress for the performance is the typical all black with accent colors. If students would like comfier clothes for the times during the day they are not performing, they are allowed to bring a change of clothes. Students should bring money for lunch somewhere off campus (Valley West Mall, Merle Hay Mall, etc.). A decision will be made as we get closer to the event.
Here is the 2015 Colloquium Schedule for all of the bands. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students.
