Jazz Band

Jazz Band is an extracurricular class focused on developing skills through playing jazz literature. It is open to any Symphonic Band musician. It meets Wednesdays from 7:20am-8:05am. Our goals include developing individual skills, performing a wide variety of music, and demonstrating musical integrity throughout the process of music making. Jazz Band begins in late October and continues to the end of the school year. Performances include the Winter Concert and the Spring Concert.
