The Battle of the Big Bands: Round 11 is an annual favorite and kindles a pleasant rivalry between Citrus College’s Blue Note Swing Orchestra and APU’s Jazz Ensemble. Each year, more than 1,000 jazz enthusiasts turn out to hear the musicians perform on stage in order to triumph over their musical opponents. In the tradition of the big band battles from the ’30s and ’40s, the two bands join forces on one stage in a back and forth duel that highlights the best in jazz music, both new and old.
