On Saturday, September 18, Northgate Jazz Band took first place for the third year in a row in the High School Big Band division at the Monterey Jazz Festival’s Next Generation Jazz Festival. In the Outstanding Soloist category, an honorable mention was given to student Thomas Wang, soprano. As a result of placing first at last season's Next Gen Jazz Festival, Northgate's Jazz Band I gave an encore performance at the festival, and many Northgate alum returned for the performance.

One of the most inclusive festivals in the United States, the festival welcomes performances by middle, high school and collegiate groups of every kind: big bands, combos, vocal ensembles, as well as conglomerate bands. Over 130 groups apply each year, and the very best duke it out for the glory of performing at the Monterey Jazz Festival in September.
