"The UNC/Greeley Jazz Festival is one of the largest festivals in the country. Bands from all over the U.S. and Canada will travel to Colorado to participate. It is a wonderful honor for both the Jazz Lab Band and Jaztet One to have been invited to perform this year," said Kris Berg, director and professor of music.
