Jazz Auditions & Rehearsal Schedule

At Park High we are extremely lucky to have two complete big bands (as well as a jazz comb - with the potential to start another one, but more on that later)!

Jazz Ensemble is an auditioned band consisting of some of the finest musicians in our program.

This is a great opportunity for students to develop another side of their musicianship and possibly start on a secondary instrument! The Jazz Rehearsal schedule is hard to construct because of the high schools new calendar. Therefore, I will always post the schedule for the next two weeks so your family can plan accordingly. If there is an issue of getting to jazz rehearsal, please contact me in advance and we will make arrangements. For my first 3 years of high school, I bummed a ride to "0" Hour from a friend every day until I was able to get a car.

Auditions for this group are being held next week with the following schedule....

For those who were able to attend, you know how much of a blast our first full-fledged band camp was. Because of your participation we were able to hit the ground running with our first football game this evening!
