For the fifth consecutive year, the Dillard Center for the Arts’ jazz band is a finalist in the prestigious Essentially Ellington competition at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York.

Dillard Jazz is the two-time winner of the competition billed as the Super Bowl of high school jazz band competitions, which is led by artistic director Wynton Marsalis.

Dillard was one of 15 bands that made the cut from more than 100 high school jazz bands across the country. The jazz band has placed first and second in prior competitions and last year received an honorable mention.
