Jazz Orchestra


The WB Jazz Orchestra is a performing ensemble.  Every rehearsal is crucial to a successful performance.  Therefore, all performances and rehearsals are REQUIRED.  If attendance is an issue, you will be removed from the group.  The director must be notified at least two weeks in advance of any absence from a performance.  Because this ensemble only meets twice a week, outside practice WILL BE necessary.

Cost: The cost of participation in Jazz Orchestra will be $50 per student (cash or check made payable to “BBAWB”).

Auditions

Auditions will be held on Monday, November 20 and Tuesday, November 21 in the WBHS band room from 2:15pm – 3:15pm. See Mr. Mielens for an audition packet and sign up for an audition time on the band room door.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals will be held from 2:30pm – 4:00pm on Mondays and Wednesdays and will begin Wednesday, November 29, 2017.
