Jazz Band is an advanced ensemble open to 7th and 8th graders through audition only. Jazz Band plays very challenging music and strives for the highest musical achievement. Students who play in Jazz Band must be dedicated members of their concert band, demonstrate a commitment to practice outside of school, and model exemplary behavior in the classroom. Auditions for Jazz Band are held in November.
