Membership in this group is by director recommendation only. This unique performance opportunity explores the world of jazz, emphasizing solo, and ensemble playing while developing improvisation techniques. Outside practice is required to keep pace with the demanding and fast-paced literature. This course is to be treated as a “lab” atmosphere, where both students and instructors collaborate in the creation of ideas and musical thoughts. Required performances include FBA State and District Assessment events and numerous playing opportunities throughout the community. This ensemble does not require membership in the marching band as co-requisite, but it is highly suggested.
