18th Annual Gene Harris Jazz Festival

Wednesday, April 1 and Thursday, April 2


The 2015 edition of the Gene Harris Jazz Festival, now in its 18th year, has been compressed into two days and they are jam-packed. Clinics, workshops, ensemble performance and showcases of Idaho's finest young musicians will be bouncing off the walls of Boise State's Student Union. The Gene Harris Festival Superband will be in the spotlight both evenings, featuring 16 world class musicians and legendary saxophonist David Liebman, who has toured with Miles Davis and Elvin Jones.

School bands from throughout Idaho take the main stage of the Special Events Center both evenings beginning at 7 p.m, just before the Festival Superband muscles in at 8 p.m.
