Every year in School District No. 73, music students at the secondary level are invited to be a part of the District Jazz Program. The program, created by Syd Griffith, provides opportunities for music students to enhance and enrich their knowledge, skills and experiences with improvisational jazz. Through the program, students receive musical direction, rehearsals, and accompaniment with professional jazz musicians. The program involves vocal and instrumental musicians (on any instrument). After auditions and a rehearsals with professional jazz musicians and educators, the students perform in a Jazz Club style concert.
Auditions are held in March with rehearsals and a final concert in May. Further details are be available from your school music teacher in early spring.
