Jazz Ensemble

Director: Mr. Brian Frazier

Jazz Ensemble provides the opportunity for the study of dance band, jazz, and popular music. The stylistic elements of performance as well as some of the important artists and music of the jazz and popular field will be studied. Students participating in this ensemble will have several opportunities to perform in the school and outside in the community, including Westminster’s Flower and Jazz Festival. During the 2016-2017 school year, there are two Jazz Ensembles which are both meeting after school and during Flex time. The Owl Jazz Ensemble includes more experienced jazz musicians while the Blue Jazz Band allows younger and less experienced jazz musicians to develop their skills.
