JAZZ BAND

The Jazz Band is a select group of individuals with select instrumentation.  Membership is by audition only and is dependent upon active participation in the Style Marchers and Symphonic Band and/or Concert Band.  The repertoire of the Jazz Band is extensive and includes early jazz through the twentieth century literature.  The Jazz Band is a class that meets (for credit) throughout the entire year and performs several concerts and festivals each year.
