Each year, the Music Department produces two large multi-day festivals. In the Fall, the North Star Music Festival celebrates the newest music and brings to campus renowned artists who collaborate with Department faculty and students. A new composition is commissioned each year for one of our large ensembles and is premiered on the final concert.
In the Spring, Truman’s venerable JazzFest, brings internationally prominent jazz musicians who perform and mentor Truman students as well as select high school students and groups. High School ensembles from around the State and region participate in this Festival each year.
