Jazz Band is the premier performing jazz ensemble in the instrumental music program. Participation is open for members of Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, or Marching Band by audition. Exceptions are warranted for acceptable rhythm section specialists. The Jazz Band rehearses outside of the school day, typically on Monday evenings and additional rehearsals or sectionals before school. The Jazz Band will perform throughout the year at concerts, jazz festivals, and a metro area tour as determined.
