Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Beginning in the 1970s, Fullerton College sponsored one of the best attended jazz festivals on the west coast, the Fullerton College Jazz Festival, supported by the nonprofit Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association. In this 1990 shot, the college jazz band is performing in front of the Student Center. In 1985, the Fullerton College Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz Group won an all expenses paid trip to perform daily concerts in Florida’s Epcot Center after winning a Disneyworld and National Association of Jazz Educators competition of jazz groups from major colleges and universities. On June 16, 1985, the Jazz Band also opened the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl, the only school group to play alongside the jazz professionals performing.
