The Casper College Kinser Jazz Festival’s mission is to promote jazz education in Wyoming. It strives to foster and celebrate greater cultural awareness and diversity within the community. The main goal of the Kinser Jazz Festival is to educate Wyoming music students. This is accomplished in a variety of settings. Renowned jazz adjudicators listen and evaluate each student ensemble. The clinicians provide written critiques, a rating, and a work session where they strive to improve the students’ performances. Regularly scheduled seminars, workshops, and performances are offered to expose the students to even more quality jazz.
