Interested in Joining Serra's Jazz Band?

posted Oct 29, 2013, 9:15 AM by sullivanp@serrahs.org

The 2013-2014 Jazz Ensemble will start rehearsing on Wednesday November 6 from 3:00-5:00 in the band room located in the Friary. All instruments are welcome in the Serra Jazz Ensemble, but we are especially interested in trumpets and trombones. There are no auditions to be in the jazz ensemble, but students should have a basic understanding of tone production, intonation, and be able to read music.

The jazz ensemble is a highly visible component of the Serra Music Department, performing at the Christmas Concert, Spring Concert, Juniper’s Journey Auction as well as the school talent show, and St. John the Baptist School Auction. The jazz ensemble has also performed at the 50th Grand Reunion and various parish festivals and Catholic grade schools.

The jazz ensemble rehearses Wednesdays after school from 3:00-5:00. This limited schedule allows members to participate in other school activities and sports such as soccer, football, hockey, FBLA, spring musical, and more. There is no fundraising requirement to be in the jazz band although we will be doing several fundraisers throughout the year to purchase new equipment.

If anyone is interested in joining the jazz band, please see Mr. Raible in 211 or e-mail him at raibler@serrahs.org.
