Jazz Ensemble is an extracurricular activity for students meeting second semester. Rehearsals are held two days a week before school (7:00-7:50). Entrance into the Jazz Ensemble requires an audition and is made up of traditional jazz instruments including saxophone, trumpet, trombone, guitar, piano, bass, and drum set. Students not enrolled in a curricular band course are welcome to audition. The Jazz Band performs at several area events and concerts each year including the Mid-Illini Jazz Festival.
