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.”
Big Band Instructor: Greg Snedeker
