The KHS Jazz I has qualified to perform at the Iowa Jazz Championships on April 18. The Iowa Jazz Championships showcases 60 of the state’s finest high school jazz ensembles. It is held in Des Moines every April and features 15 groups from each of the four Iowa high school classifications. All ensembles perform in the daytime competition, and the top two bands from each classification perform in the evening finals competition. The event was founded by Iowa jazz educators over thirty years ago and continues to be an important event on the Iowa high school music landscape each spring.
