Volunteers Needed for 53rd Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival

January 31, 2020

MOSCOW, Idaho — Jan. 31, 2020 — Thousands of K-college student musicians, educators and guests will visit the University of Idaho campus Feb. 28-29 for the 53rd Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival.

From greeting guests and managing competition sites to driving artists and educators around town, the festival is seeking volunteers.

The event, part of the Lionel Hampton School of Music in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, consists of student competitions, educational workshops and evening concerts featuring some of today’s top jazz artists.

"It takes the support of hundreds of volunteers to make the jazz festival a success each year,” said Josh Skinner, Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival manager. “We invite individuals of all ages and abilities to join the fun and play an important role in the festival.”

Volunteers earn one evening concert ticket for every four hours of service, including training and orientation meetings.

Registration is open to community members, students, faculty and staff. For a description of the volunteer opportunities, visit jazzvolunteer@uidaho.edu.
