The hottest young jazz talent in the country hits the stage as they contend for trophies and glory

For 41 years the National Youth Jazz Competition have showcased the very best of emerging jazz players from across New Zealand. Over three days Combos and Big Bands from New Zealand Secondary Schools strut their stuff for trophies and awards. Many a career has been launched from these competitions - past winners include Nathan Haines, Hollie Smith and Sacha Vee.

This year we have two international judges on our judging panel: American bassist Dewayne Pate and saxophonist Dave Wilson. Head judge is Dr Rodger Fox.

Stage performances will be streamed live on YouTube so you can follow the competition where ever you are - follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
