Making it on the cover

Congratulations to Lucia Nunez (BA, Jazz Performance) who made it on the cover of this year's DownBeat Magazine!

Lucia has been honored in the 47th Annual DownBeat Student Music Awards with an award for Outstanding Performance in the undergraduate category. Her talent and hard work are truly inspiring!

The DownBeat Student Music Awards recognize the top jazz ensembles at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Nine judges evaluate the participating groups based on several performance criteria including overall sound, proper interpretation, improvisation, creativity, intonation, phrasing and dynamics. The honorees are selected from a competitive pool in which winners must demonstrate a distinct voice in addition to technical proficiency.

The DownBeat Student Music Awards are considered the most prestigious awards in jazz education. Since its founding in 1976, hundreds of musicians, music educators and music industry professionals received their first international recognition as DownBeat Student Music Award winners.
