High School Jazz Band

2020-21

PLEASE encourage your students to audition for the District Honor Jazz Band as we would like to have a full ensemble. Even if you don't have a Jazz Band in your school, they can still participate in this group! They can also be a member of the District Honor Band which meets in December.

The Jazz entry is due on Oct. 1 by 11:59 PM CENTRAL TIME. Festival Scores is used and the selections need to be uploaded in mp3 format. PLEASE play back your student's entry in Festival Scores to make sure you can hear the audio. Your school is not charged for the audition; only if the student makes the Jazz Band. Please email me or text/call me if you have questions.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in November!
