The Auckland Schools Jazz Competition is the largest secondary schools jazz competition in New Zealand, with over forty bands from Auckland schools taking part.
Last weekend seven Avondale College bands performed, and two Avcol groups - our Big Band and the Avondale College Quintet - have been selected to compete at the finals this Sunday, 15 August!
"This is an outstanding achievement for our students and speaks volumes about their commitment and dedication to their art," says Avondale's Head of Jazz, Mr Michael Robinson.
The Auckland Jazz Competition finals will be held at Point Chevalier RSA, 1136 Great North Road, Point Chevalier. There is a $5 entry fee.
The Avondale College Jazz Quintet will be performing at 1pm. The Big Band sessions are scheduled to begin at 2:40pm, with Avondale third on the programme.
Congratulations to all the students who have made it into this prestigious final - we wish them all the best for Sunday's performances!
