Jazz Ensemble camp is coming! We will hold Jazz Ensemble camp from August 3 – 6 from 9 AM to 1 PM. Jazz Ensemble members made a commitment to this week when you accepted the invitation to join the band back in May. We will not have rehearsal on Friday as the schools are still closed on Fridays. Officers should make plans to stay until 6 PM on Tuesday to do some maintenance projects.
A list of music to download will be emailed to you shortly. See you all next week!
