Led by world renowned trumpeter and educator Terell Stafford, the Temple University Jazz Band carries with it a stellar reputation for musicianship and jazz studies.

This year, we congratulate our 2020 Billy Strayhorn Jazz Education Scholarship Award recipient, Mr. Patrick Hill. Patrick plays alto saxophone and completed his undergrad at another prestigious jazz music institution, the University of North Texas. Patrick, who is a resident of Rowlett, Texas (a suburb of Dallas), is in the first year of getting his Masters in Jazz Studies at the Boyer College of Music and Dance.

Join us in congratulating Patrick on being selected for this award and joining our growing list of young and talented musicians representing the Strayhorn musical legacy.
