Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland is one of America’s first educational jazz festivals and has grown into the region’s premier center for jazz education. The College is committed to presenting students of all ages with a wealth of opportunities to learn from world-class artists at master classes throughout the year and during Tri-C DownBeat Jazz Education Days in the spring.
