The Detroit Jazz Festival is the largest free jazz festival in the world. The NHS Jazz Ensemble has performed at this festival since it’s founding over 40 years ago. The 2022-2023 Jazz Ensemble will meet in the NHS Band Room at 9:00 AM in tuxedo to rehearse briefly before their performance at 12:20 – 1:00 PM on the Absopure Waterfront Stage in Downtown Detroit. Students will either need to drive themselves, have parents transport them, or carpool with others — there are no buses or trucks/trailer from NHS to Downtown Detroit. The closest parking to the festival is the Ford Auditorium Underground Garage, located at 30 East Jefferson, Detroit, MI 48226. There is a $10 parking fee for this garage.
