Jazz II begins on Tuesday, November 28th at 7am in the PAC. I am excited to say that Nathanael Ankeny, a saxophone player and jazz professor at George Fox University, will be leading the Jazz II program again.
Jazz II will meet 2 times per week, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 7:00-7:50am. This ensemble will also meet 1-2 Fridays per month (Friday schedule TBD).
We are not holding auditions for this ensemble. Jazz II is open for currently enrolled band students who are interested in learning or developing their skills on a jazz instrument. We are looking for students who have a good attitude, willing to practice, and show up on time.
Jazz II will perform about 4 times during the school year in 2017. Our first performance will be at the West Salem Jazz Festival on Saturday, February 10th.
If you are interested, please sign up on the signup sheet located on the cabinet inside the band room.
Looking forward to getting it going and having Nathanael Ankeny on board again. We’re lucky to have him! See you the morning of Tuesday, November 28th at 7am in the PAC!
