Jazz Ensemble

The Scotts Ridge Middle School Jazz Ensemble is a competitive, high-achieving, award-winning group.  The Jazz Ensemble is rooted in a traditional big-band line-up and performs challenging repertoire that ranges from classic big band jazz literature to contemporary selections to Latin music. The goal of the ensemble is to put on a quality performance while engaging the students in a stimulating and fun way.  Because of the challenges associated with the music, students must audition for membership.  The group meets once or a twice a week for sectional rehearsals and/or full rehearsals.

Students are expected to arrive a few minutes early for setup and warm-up so rehearsals can begin on time.  Note: sectionals are rehearsals for small groups of instruments or like-instruments only.  Please arrive a few minutes early in order to begin on time.
