2021 JAZZ BAND INFORMATION
(Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Kats)
Please read all of the information on the Jazz Band Registration Form. Each jazz band member must submit the form by Wednesday, November 10 at 4:00 PM.
Auditions will be virtual 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, and we recommend that you do so early. This will help you prepare for virtual auditions/registration. If you are submitting a virtual audition, do your best to prepare the music below, but if you are unable to perform the materials in their entirety, play what you can. Students submitting a virtual audition are encouraged to improvise over the F Blues play-along track at right, but it is not required. There is a $25 fee for all students who participate in a jazz band. Additional information and registration instructions are included in the form.
Note: There is not a separate audition for vibraphone or auxiliary percussion. Drum set players will rotate into those roles as appropriate.
