Instrumental Jazz Band sessions start Wednesday, Sept 18th
As in years past, the Directors are hoping to form four Jazz Bands. All students that play trumpet, saxophone, trombone, drum-set, vibes, piano, bass, or guitar are invited to join one of the bands. Interested students should attend all of the Wednesday Night Sessions that begin on Wednesday, Sept 18th. Materials will be provided at the first session. On the last Wednesday Night Session (Oct 9th), Directors will hear everyone perform, and the Directors will then divide all the students into the four bands. Further details will be provided at the first session.
