MEDFORD, Ore. — The 25th Medford Jazz Festival is wrapping up their concert series. Seventeen different jazz bands played at five venues in Medford this weekend.
The Medford Jazz Festival is a non-profit organization aimed at supporting music education in schools.
“By a child learning to read write and play music it can affect their education and their academics everywhere,” said Medford Jazz Festival Board of Director’s Thomas Boruff. “It’s not just a discipline that is not only fun and enjoyable, but it helps in their overall academics.”
This year bands from all over the country and local schools participated in the three day festival.
