Jazz Ensemble is an extracurricular activity for students meeting second semester. Rehearsals are held two evenings a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00 - 8:30pm. 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.
