Jazz Band Overview
Advisor: Mr. Brackbill - Brackbillj@manheimcentral.org
Our Jazz Barons provide an opportunity for musicians to play in a smaller ensemble setting and explore the varied musical idioms of jazz. Jazz Band is open to all students who play instruments found in standard jazz bands- saxophones, trombones, trumpet, and guitar, bass, piano and drum set. The band rehearses once a week after school beginning in late October/ early November and is also part of the enrichment offerings. Students interested in jazz band should expect to rehearse BOTH during enrichment AND after school. The Jazz Barons perform frequently in the spring throughout the Manheim Central community and at local high school jazz festivals.
