2022 JAZZ BAND INFORMATION
Please read all of the information on the Jazz Registration Form. Each jazz band member must submit the form by November 9 at 7:00 PM.
Auditions will be recorded and are required for all rhythm section players as well as those trumpet, trombone, and saxophone players who wish to be considered for the Jazz Orchestra (advanced group.) Saxophone, Trumpet, and Trombone/Euphonium players who wish to sign up for Jazz Kats may do so without recording an audition. Be sure to read the Jazz Band Registration Form carefully, in advance. This will help you prepare for auditions/registration.
Auditions include your choice of at least one of three components: Excerpt 1 (intermediate), Excerpt 2 (advanced), and Improvisation (at the right of this page.) You may submit as many components as you would like, either in one video or in separate videos. If you are unable to perform the materials in their entirety, play what you can. Again, a minimum of only one of those components is required, but more are welcome.
There is a $25 fee for all students who participate in a jazz band.
Note: There is not a separate audition for vibraphone or auxiliary percussion. Drum set players will rotate into those roles as appropriate.
