2019-2020 will be our 42nd season……………
SuperJazz began the current concert series in Fall 1978 in Bell Auditorium on campus at
UAB. When the Alys Stephens Center opened in 1996, SuperJazz moved the concert series to the new Jemison Concert Hall for 8 seasons. When the Stephens Center was no longer available to SuperJazz at the end of the 2002 season, a study of our mailing list dictated a location in the Homewood area. John Carroll Catholic High School generously offered rehearsal space and use of the 600-seat auditorium. Our stay at John Carroll lasted five years. When Samford University opened the new Brock Recital Hall adjacent to the Wright Fine Arts Center, several members of the Samford instrumental music faculty encouraged the band to move the concerts to Samford. We made the move at the beginning of the 2007-2008 season. After 11 years at Samford, SuperJazz returned to John Carroll Catholic High School for the 2018-2019 season. The larger auditorium with its convenient and ample parking space make an attractive venue for our concerts We renewed our partnership with the John Carroll Band program, and the John Carroll Band Parents organization. The band director at John Carroll Catholic High School, SuperJazz member Dr, Mark Foster, and the Principal, Dr. Anthony Montalto, have been extremely helpful in making this move possible.
All SuperJazz concerts are at 3:00 PM on Sunday afternoon. The lobby opens at 2:00 and the auditorium doors open at 2:30. Our concerts are family-friendly and smoke-free. There is a modest admission charge at the door. Advance tickets are not available.
