Jazz Ensemble (Full Year – 1.0 credit)
This is a select group of musicians that form a performing group specializing in jazz, jazz-rock, blues, and swing. The class meets as a regular class throughout the school year and performs on the regular scheduled concerts. In addition, the Jazz Ensemble may be asked to perform at certain functions after school in and around the community. All students registered for Jazz Ensemble receive Honors Credit.
Eligibility is by director’s recommendation or those who meet the audition requirements. Membership is limited to proper instrumentation. It is strongly encouraged that jazz band members also participate in one of the other concert band classes (Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, or Concert Band).
Activities: Concerts, benefits, and community services as well as recruiting.
