Bill Watrous Jazz Festival Underway at SHSU

Published on March 31, 2017 by Larry Crippen

The SHSU School of Music will host the 7th annual Sam Houston State University Bill Watrous Jazz Festival March 31 through April 1 at the Gaertner Performing Arts Center.

The festival, originally known as the SHSU Jazz Festival, has the distinction of being the oldest in the state of Texas—59-years and running, according to Director of Jazz Studies Aric Schneller.

The two-day event will include free performances from college, high school and junior high school jazz bands.

The jazz bands will perform at 30-minute intervals throughout both days starting at 9 a.m.

Tickets for the closing concert on each day are available at the GPAC Box Office
