The festival will feature performances by participating middle schools, clinics by the BMS faculty, professional development for participating school faculty members, and a closing concert/awards ceremony. Previous guest artists have included: Dr. Victor Lewis, Robin Eubanks, Sherman Irby, and Duane Eubanks.

The 2018 guest host is the exciting jazz trumpeter, Ingrid Jensen, who has brought her dynamic trumpet sound into the music of influential bandleaders like Terri-Lyne Carrington and Esperanza Spalding, as well as the big bands of Darcy James Argue and Maria Schneider. She also leads her own groups, which have continued to garner glowing reviews and a loyal fan base around the globe. As a dedicated jazz educator at the University of Michigan, the Peabody Conservatory, and with the Thelonious Monk Institute - Ingrid looks forward to working with your students and performing with the Brooklyn Music School Jazz Faculty Ensemble. She will bring her expertise to work with middle school students throughout the day and perform with the Brooklyn Music School Jazz Faculty Ensemble for a closing concert at 5:30 p.m.

Though the festival is non-competitive, the guest artist and the BMS faculty will be adjudicating performances to offer suggestions/encouragement and will award certificates for outstanding musicianship. The Brooklyn Music School intends for this festival to strengthen middle school jazz programs and build jazz community among young musicians in Brooklyn.
