• The Jazz Band & Jazz Ensemble are audition-based groups for select students in grades 9 – 12 that meet weekly on Thursday evenings in the band room. Auditions for these groups will occur during the last week of each September and placement in each group will be based on the strength of the audition.  The Jazz Band will rehearse from 6:00- 7:00 p.m. on Thursdays. We will also rehearse during 10th period on some Tuesdays.  The Jazz Ensemble will rehearse from 7:00-8:00 p.m. on Thursdays. We may rehearse occasionally during a 10th period on Tuesdays. It is expected that students will commit to the rehearsal time frame to the best of their ability. Concert dress is all black (black shirt, pants/skirt and socks/shoes). Both groups have scheduled performances on the following dates:
