Jazz Performance Assessment

Begun in 1998, the SCBDA All-State Jazz Performance Assessment (formerly Jazz Festival) is held annually on the campus of Newberry College in conjunction with the Newberry Jazz Festival and SCBDA All-State Jazz Band Clinic. This area of Bandlink contains information on current and historical content concerning the SCBDA Jazz Performance Assessment (JPA).

Each JPA information page contains information about schedules, ensembles, photos, repertoire, and other information when available.

Information for the 2020-2021 School Year will be published here as soon as the committee finalizes it.
