24th Annual Gene Harris Jazz Festival

April, 2021: Month of Virtual Jazz Education

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.

This year, we are focusing on broadening and increasing the amount of educational activities and events available to our students and educators.  Additionally we are structuring the festival so that students have more opportunity to take full advantage of everything that we are offering!

The COVID-19 Pandemic has hit the arts community hard, and musicians the hardest. If you are in a position to support music, your donation(s) will immediately impact the Department of Music.  Contributions to the Gene Harris Jazz Festival will enable us to continue building Gene’s endowment in support of comprehensive music education at Boise State University.
