Big Band

This course is open to players of all instruments and abilities. Students develop individual and ensemble instrumental techniques through the study and performance of a variety of music from standard jazz and big band literature. Students perform at concerts and jazz festivals. This is a full year, pass/fail performance ensemble that fulfills one arts requirement.

Throughout the year students will cover big band repertoire that spans stylistically from jazz¬†standards to latin and popular and work on things like winter holiday medleys and medium funk arrangements such as “Glazed Over.”
