2020-2021 Important Update

On behalf of the AIJB Board of Directors, it is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 All-Illinois Junior Band due to the ongoing complications created by the current COVID-19 pandemic. We remain dedicated to providing a first rate experience that is without compromise, and look forward to relaunching in 2021-2022 under the baton of University of Illinois Associate Director of Bands, Barry Houser.

Please check the website this Fall for updated audition repertoire and 2021-2022 AIJB information. Festival dates for 2022 will be announced in the Spring of 2021.

The AIJB Festival has quickly become our favorite weekend of the year, and we share in the disappointment of another cancelled event.

Best Regards,

Chip De Stefano and Wayne Gordon
