Shenandoah Conservatory’s annual Jazzathon returns with a new name that pays homage to Winchester’s own John Kirby, the award-winning double bassist who collaborated with jazz greats such as Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Goodman among others. The festival features a full day of jazz and blues performed at outdoor venues across campus. Enjoy food and drinks in our festival beer garden and a lineup of performances by the conservatory’s own Studio Big Band and Little Big Band, as well as special guest artists Robbie Limon, the Eric Byrd Trio, Billy Thompson, James Wood Middle School and the Boogaloo Brass Band.
