The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, University of California, Davis, in conjunction with SFJAZZ, is recruiting talented high school musicians for the eight-person ensemble called the Mondavi Center SFJAZZ High School All-Stars.

Now entering its second year, the program provides advanced training for serious jazz students through rehearsals, master classes with members of the SFJAZZ Collective and regular performance opportunities — culminating in a performance at the new SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco on March 30, 2013.

Preliminary auditions will be held by audio submission, which should include five tunes in a variety of styles and a range of tempos.

Interested students must submit an application, letter of recommendation and audio submission by Monday, Sept. 24.

Download the application at mondaviarts.org/jazzallstars. Final auditions will be held before a panel of judges and are by invitation only.

Those invited to join the ensemble will be skilled and dedicated students who are willing to give 100 percent commitment to be a member of this jazz ensemble.

Last year’s ensemble members were given many exciting opportunities, including coaching sessions, master classes and a variety of performance opportunities in venues large and small.

In an effort to support active listening as a major component of the All-Stars experience, ensemble members will also receive a pair of tickets to see each artist in the Mondavi Center’s 2012–13 Capital Public Radio Jackson Hall Jazz and Studio Jazz Series.

Mike McMullen, a jazz studies faculty member at California State University, Sacramento and founding member of Sacramento’s Capital Jazz Project, will lead the ensemble for a second season.

“With SFJAZZ and Mike McMullen as our partners we expected great things from last year’s inaugural class,” said Jeremy Ganter, Mondavi Center associate artistic director and director of programing. “In fact, every facet of the project exceeded our wildest dreams, especially the extraordinary musicianship of the students involved. We know the hard work they do with their high school and the private instructors is a huge factor in their success as All-Stars, and we’re so excited to see what year two will bring.”

 Tickets to all 2012–13 Mondavi Center season events are on sale at 530-754-2787, 866-754-2787 (toll-free), 530-754-5402 (TDD) and MondaviArts.org.

The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis, is one of Northern California’s premier arts destinations. The Mondavi Center presents nearly 100 performances each year by both professional and student artists in music, dance, theater, film and the spoken word.

The Mondavi Center’s main performance space, 1,801-seat Jackson Hall, features next-generation theatrical equipment and superb acoustics that make it a favorite for the world’s greatest musicians and dance and theater companies.

The center’s 200-seat Vanderhoef Studio Theatre provides high-tech space for rehearsals, film screenings and intimate musical experiences.

SFJAZZ is the West Coast’s largest nonprofit jazz institution and will celebrate the grand opening of its own permanent home, the SFJAZZ Center, on Jan. 21, 2013 in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley. The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star jazz ensemble comprising eight of the finest performers and composers at work in jazz today.
