JAZZ BAND

JAZZ BAND AT ST. ED'S

Our Jazz Ensemble performs concerts in the spring, attends local Jazz Fests, and performs for school functions. Students form an approximately 20 piece ensemble and bring jazz music of all eras to life. The group rehearses during community period and Fridays after school once marching band season ends.

 

Our Jazz Combo performs concert in the spring, attends local jazz workshops, and performs for the surrounding community throughout the year. Throughout the year, students will learn about and develop improvisation techniques, aural skills, and performance ability. Daily practice and listening is central to the class. Jazz Combo is a curricular class that meets as a part of the school day and is a 1 credit, year-long course. Students who have taken this course are often featured soloists with the Jazz Ensemble.
