The Alabama All-State Jazz Bands typically rehearses and performs a concert in conjunction with the annual AMEA Conference in January. Since AMEA is a virtual conference this year, we were fortunate enough to move our All-State Jazz Band rehearsal and performances to Lakeside Baptist Church. This church is able to distance people in rehearsals and at the performance. In addition, they have a custodial staff that will be regularly cleaning the rehearsal and performance locations. Lakeside Baptist Church is near the intersection of I-65 and I-459 in Hoover. There are multiple hotels and food locations within a short drive of the church for participants or guests.

Attendance at the performance may be limited based on the recommendations of the CDC, ALEPH, and the requests of Lakeside Baptist to ensure the safest measures for all participants. We are planning on a live-stream of the concert if feasible.
