Gene Harris Jazz Festival

The Gene Harris Jazz Festival seeks to enrich the Treasure Valley by bringing world-class performing artists into contact with local students and community members both on and off campus. The festival seeks to bolster the practice of comprehensive music education at Boise State University by supporting scholarships, guest artists, and the festival itself.

Due to the nature of Boise State University and the community, on the advice of state and federal public health experts, the University has made the decision to suspend all events at this time, including all jazz events and the 2020 Gene Harris Jazz Festival originally scheduled on April 2 & 3. All school registrations for this year’s festival are hereby canceled and will be refunded. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.

Patrons who have already purchased tickets may elect to request a refund through seatadvisor, or through the Egyptian Theatre directly.

Be well and take good care of yourself.

Assistant Professor, Trumpet
Executive Director, Gene Harris Jazz Festival
